"No Coloring" challenge

At Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light this week our challenge is to make something without coloring it.  I  used colored inks and patterned papers for my entry:


This uses a real mix of stamps and products from several companies.  From Our Daily Bread comes the quote from Ecclesiastes: "To every thing there is a season....", stamped over the egg-patterned paper from K&Company.  The main image, a Crafty Individuals bird image,  was stamped in Hero Hues cerulean chalk ink.  And the sentiment is a new one from Flourishes Lenten Rose set.  The other printed paper is from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose "Gertie" paper pad, and the lovely toile-like flower is from the Recollections line at Michaels.

supplies:  pale aqua, ivory parchment and kraft cardstocks, Magenta Crafty Individuals #95205M, Our Daily Bread "Randi's Song", Flourishes "Lenten Rose", Hero Hues cerulean chalk ink, Memories art print brown ink, K&Company Susan Winget Botanical Die Cut Mat Pad, My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose "Gertie" paper pad, Hero Arts CH231 Lace Ribbon, Recollections "Boutique Fleur"
