Be The Change

In this post, I'm playing along with three challenges, although two of the three are combined.  Clean & Simple FTL 153 and CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #15 have joined hands and are combining their challenges.  How fun is this?

The other challenge I'm entering this card in is Less is More Week 28 Challenge.  This challenge requires a one layer card using ink!

For my card I actually came up with this technique - using a dryer sheet.  It actually has a texture to it - not sure if the camera picked that up.  I'm going to keep playing with this technique.  I really liked the results.

I used a stamp set from Gina K Design, "Follow Your Dreams" illustrated by Theresa Momber.  I stamped the threes using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped the sentiment using DI "Walnut Stain".

Have a great week!
