One Color Card Stock and Ink + White

For Kitchen Sink 10 Minute Card #61 I have used one sheet of colored card stock and the ink pad that matches it along with a little white card stock. Often people will contact me about layered stamping saying they don't have a wide range of ink pads or colors that blend well together. I designed today's challenge to demonstrate that depth and color coordination can be created with only one color. You don't have to have tons of ink to get beautiful results.

Pull out your Kitchen Sink images to give it a try and share your results with us in the Kitchen Sink Stamps Gallery.
