Clean and Simple with Ink Only

 The challenge at Casual Friday is to create a Clean And Simple card using the FTL Sketch shown below.  This is a combined challenge with Clean and Simple Stamping....a 2 for 1 you might say. My card also fits in the challenge at Less is More which is to make a One Layer card using ink. I masked off an area and sponged on  3 colors-using Memento New Sprouts, Rich Cocoa, and Summer Sky. I then stamped the images over this inked space using Memento Bamboo Leaves, Tangelo, and Rich Cocoa inks.. Stamps are from Flourishes "Summer Blossoms" and Sentiment from MFP's. Colored in the blossoms with orange pencils. Added some details to the "fence" with brown pencil and sparkle to the dragonfly with Sakura Clear Star pen.
