OLS15- Blowin' in the Wind


This month it is my turn to host the OLS One-Layer Simplicity Challenge.
With the arrival of Spring, it has me thinking about warm, sunny, windy days.  
So this month the challenge I chose is called


For my card, I sprinkled some Bister onto my paper (Bister is a paint medium), sprayed with a generous amount of water and then used a straw to blow the ink around on my card front.
Easy right?!  
I stamped the sentiment from Rubbernecker using Stazon ink.  Remember, for easy clean-up, apply Versamark ink on your stamp first then the Stazon.

I am also adding my card to these challenges:

Simply Create Too- ANYTHING GOES

Colour Me- MONOCHROMATIC

Time Out- CAS BLACK AND WHITE PLUS A SPLASH OF COLOUR

Through the Craft Room Door- ANYTHING GOES

Crafting from the Heart- ANYTHING GOES


Hoping you will check out the challenge and get a chance to play along.
Thanks so very much for the visit.

Supplies:  stamp- Rubbernecker/ Bister/ straw/ Mini Mister/ Stazon bl ink/ Versamark ink
