Less Is More and Clean & Simple

The Less is More challenge 28 is awesome this week.  Use your inks on a one layer card.  Well, I have no problem with that challenge, in fact, I LOVE THIS challenge!  I made a template from some cardboard for my sponging, along with a couple of post its for the division of colors.  Do you notice how black my image is?  I have to share with you all - I got some Versafine Onyx Black ink, made by Tsukineko.  WOW!  This ink is the most blackest black ink ever! I just love it for solid images and sentiments.  (Doesn't work with copics though :)) Speaking of which, my image and sentiment are from Gina K Designs Botanicals.
My sketch is from Clean & Simple FTL 153, and they are teaming up with CAS-ual Fridays - CFC 15 - 2 for one.  Gotta love that.  Overall, this one layer 10 min card = 3 challenges.  Nothing wrong with that!
Thanks for stopping by~

this is amazing! I think it would be such a challenge to do just a one layer card! That black ink really is cool, I'll definitely need to look into it. Thanks for sharing and inspiring :)
