Simple Inking

Good Morning
Meet today's card. 
 Just some simple inking and stamping on this one. 

I just picked up this stamp the other day at Michaels and wanted to play with it.  
I began by doing some simple inking down my card front using the Acetate Inking technique I showed here on my blog.  It is simple and fun.  I rubbed 2 colours of Distress Oxides onto my acetate sheet, sprayed with water and pressed onto my paper.
Next, I placed the wildflowers into my Misti, inked with Memento black and pressed over the inked area.  
I stamped the sentiment the same way using my Misti and done.
A very Clean and Simple card.

 Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Thanks for taking a look.
