Simplicity Sunday - A Simple Card by Dot

Welcome to Simplicity Sunday.
Today I've a very simple card to share with you.

I've used the Dancing Woman stamp as the main piece for this one.
Firstly I've blended some Iced Spruce Distress Ink onto some scrap cardstock and made sure it was thoroughly dry. I dabbed an anti-static pad over it and stamped the image with Versamark ink and then added white embossing powder.  Heating it to melt the EP.

To make the lady stand out a little more I've blended some Black Soot around the edges before cutting it out. I matted this onto white, then black card.

For the larger background I've used the Textured Flowers stamp set.  I coloured some scrap card with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, stamped some flowers and cut them out.  The background has some circles from this set randomly stamped onto the card.

To finish all you need to do is attach the centre piece and the flowers! Oh, and I added a little black shading around the lady with a black fine liner.

Tip: I've cut a couple of the flowers so that they sit on the edge of the white card.  I think this gives a lovely finish.

This card uses the colours (Lilac, Grey and Black) and theme (circles) from this month's challenge.
I hope that you like this card and have time to pop one of your creations into our challenge.

Thank you for looking.
