a DAZ card

Occasionally I like to make clean and simple cards (CAS, or DAZ as I call them!) especially if I have a stamp that I think would look awesome.
This Kanban roses stamp is one of those stamps.

I decided to stamp directly to the card blank with Stazon, then stamped the roses again a few times on a scrap piece of cardstock so that I could layer the roses themselves.
I also thought that it would make a nice change to colour this image with SU inks and a water brush (another reason for using stazon)
Colours were a mix of garden green, old olive, close to cocoa, summer sun & barely banana.
The sentiment is from SU's 'best yet' stamp set.

Here's a closer pic of the layered roses...
