Less is More #28 OLC use ink

Wow ~ have I missed crafting and posting on my blog! We had a terrific fun filled summer with three weeks left to go I couldn't help but sneak away to play. 
I find trying to do a one layer card (OLC) challenging with a great combination of frustration and enjoyment!  For the OLC Less is more challenge this week I chose this tulip stained glass rubber stamp to create with.  I used ink daubers and made a mask out of vellum and inked in the design with pigment ink.  I let go of the perfection factor and liked how the colors blended in outside of the lines.  I paper punched my corners and added a very thin purple ribbon for accent and to highlight the 'thinking of you" sentiment.
