LIM challenge (week 28) one layer

It's week 28 over at the 'Less is More' website.
This week it's a 'one layer' card &' ink', I seem
to dread making these one layer cards...although
I did a one layer card last week !....so maybe I
am getting used to the idea.
Anyway I had a quick 'go' at it today , three cards
would you believe!!!! my fav is this one I think,
still not got it quite right......may have another bash
later in the week...or not! I used various inks and
stamped them onto a clear block then used my
paintbrush to make a little scene. I added various
bits using a fine ink liner to finish them.
The others I made in a similar way except the
larger square card which I used a clear block
and ink then  spritzed with water and stamped that
for a background.Hmmm still not sure about any
of them! have a good weekend everyone anyway!

ps. Forgive me if some of them look crooked, they
need putting under a heavy book I think, they warped slightly
with the water and ink used.

A brilliant idea Viv, but think I'll be giving this week a miss, as I've only two or three ink pads, and not many stamps at all.

Oh WOW Viv. Each of these cards is stunningly beaurtiful. They are wonderful mini works of art. I say get three small frames and hang them on the wall in a nice row. I know I'd love to have something that pretty hanging in a frame on my wall.

Gorgeous work Viv ... simply gorgeous.
