Quick Layers of Ink

I stumbled onto a new blog and challenge today; it is known as One Layer Wednesday, at Susan Raihala's blog, Simplicity.  This week we are to make a one layer card with nothing but layers of ink by overlapping stamped images and/or sentiment.  Sounded intriguing to me, so I had a go of it:


supplies: white card stock, Hero Arts CL479 Dictionary Greeting, F2621 A Real Violet (2002), C2969 Abstract Mesh (2004) "borrowed" from my friend Mary Anne, CL371 Essential Messages, versafine onyx black ink, mustard seed distress ink and Memento green marker for stem, VersaCraft cerulean blue ink

I used all Hero Arts stamps, 2 old and 2 new and a color scheme I recently used for another challenge that I really enjoyed.    This was really lots of fun, and I spent an enjoyable afternoon playing with various designs.  For now, this one appeals to me the most.

I'm also entering this into the Moxie Fab World's "Stamp It!" challenge.
