KSS 10 Minute Design #85

For this week's clean and simple one layer design, I have sponged an inch and a half section of ground and sky as the backdrop for my stamped Kitchen Sink images. I then stamped the images partly inside and partly outside the sponged background to create this week's 10 minute design.

You can find all 85 of my 10 minute designs archived in the Kitchen Sink Forum in the Crew Challenge Cupboard under Monday 10 Minute Card Challenge . Sometimes it is fun to scroll through these oldies for some new inspiration.
