Minimal at Try it on Tuesday

Hi there
It's time for this weeks Try it on Tuesday Challenge. This week is card week with a fabby prize from our sponsor, One Stop Card Crafts.
This weeks card theme is Minimal; so one for all you clean and simple fans out there.......
Here is my card
Simply using a black card blank, white card, a little distress ink colouring and a few gems. The image is from Sweet Pea, isn't it beautiful? I picked it up at Ally Pally from The Artful Splodger. I'd seen the stamps online before but I prefer to see things in the flesh so to speak if I haven't seen them before so was pleased to find them there!
I just cut some of the white card away freehand to create interest.
I kept the colouring simple too to keep within the minimal style, just using a thin wash of stormy sky, scattered straw and spun sugar distress stains and water. I added the little gems last minute for texture and sparkle.
There's loads more inspiration over on the TioT blog from all my teamies so why not pop on over and join in?
See you all later.......
