Less is More Challenge #263: one layer

Less is More Challenge #263: one layer and a DT call.


For my card I cut Neenah Solar white card to size and stamped the poppy with Memento Tuxedo black, the image is from Craft Emotions and I went outside especially to get it..it was freezing and I was quite comfortable under my blanket..lol..
But yeah I wanted it, I have a  cluster of poppies but I wanted this single one for the card I had in mind.
I stamped to the right and the sentiment from Stampendous (encouraging words) next to it.
I scribbled in the lines with a multiliner in two sizes. Freehanded as I wanted scribbled lines, not straight ruler like ones.
I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir markers.
It, ofcourse, bled through to the inside, not sure if I will add a liner, haven't yet, will see.
Considered adding a few dewdrops, but for the occasion I thought it would be wrong, also less is more ;-)

I encourage you to join in and consider the DT spot, I am, so wish me luck!
