OLW 60: Quick Layers of Ink

Yeah!  I made the Simplicity challenge this past Wednesday!  And, it was a fun one!

This week's OLW challenge is to make quick and easy cards with nothing but layers of ink by overlapping the stamped images and/or sentiment. The idea here is to practice whipping up a quick card or even an easy card set at the last minute with just ink and cardstock!

I really needed a few quick thank you cards and this challenge fit the bill.  I dug through my stamp drawers and pulled out a mess of stamps and memento ink colors and went to town. 

First up:


Love, love, love this polka dotted scallop stamp from Memory Box.  This is the first time it's seen ink...so glad to finally use it!  Flowers and sentiment are from Savvy Stamps.

Second:
Another GREAT round script stamp from Memory Box.  Flower stamp by Just For Fun and sentiment by Printworks.

Next:
 Same Memory Box script, Hero Arts leaves and AMuse sentiment.

Fourth:
 Memory Box script again, Judikins cattails, Hero Arts sentiment.

Fifth:
 Hero  Arts script and blocks, Lockhart sentiment.

And, last but not least:
Bline Designs polka dot stamp (use this one ALL the time!), Just For Fun flowers and AMuse sentiment.

Thanks, Susan, for pushing me to get these done!  It feels good!

Thanks for peeking!
