Clean and Simple


One layer, clean and simple.  Give me some ink and paper and that's what I came up with.  
My card began with a stenciled background; some Salty Ocean Distress ink and some splashes of water rubbed over my stencil.  I pulled out one of my favourite stamps from Penny Black called Hill Flowers.  I love how the silhouette flowers look against the background.  The sentiment is also from Penny Black called Happiness.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
One-Layer Simplicity- CAN YOU REPEAT THAT 
Less is More- ANYTHING GOES (OLC)

Have a great day.

Supplies; stamps- Penny Black/ stencil-The Crafter's Workshop/ Distress ink/ Mememto black ink/ twine
