Single Layer Card - Challenge #16

The current challenge over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity is to make a Single Layer Project. That means no layers, no embellishments etc. 

I have used Carmen's Veranda Birds Background stamp to make my card, and thought this
image was gorgeous enough without the additional layers :

This Carmen's Veranda background stamp is gorgeous and actually bigger than an average card front.
I have made a standard sized card here, 4.25" x 5.5".

The background is sprayed with Dylusions, then I stamped the image with archival black ink. I then spent some time using a paint brush to color the image, with various inks and stains. I love coloring, and can definitely see the fascination with coloring books, its just so relaxing and therapeutic. 

Here is my work in progress :

To finish off, I added some dark brown and white gel pen detail and accents. My final touch was to sponge on some yellow distress ink to tone it down a little, and I matted and mounted the card front.

I hope you find some inspiration here, and perhaps you will come and join our challenge to make a single layer project, there are only two days left to link up .....
