Retro flower

Wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with this skinny stamp but it just shouted 1970's to me so it had to be orange !  I did try to the water colour technique with random splodges of water colour but it looked awful so ended up just going for painting with distress inks, background is dusted with distress inks as well. Its ages since I made a DL size card but I have made another one since only in landscape orientation, just a change from the six inch squares I seem to always use. Hope it firs a few challenges
