Clean Slate

Hello All!

Well I think I have decided to make a New Years resolution and that is to join a few challenges! I have found Virginia's View Challenge particularly interesting..
Lots of white space and one layer cards are something I am trying to improve on.

So I decided to use Wetlands Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! and By the Sea 2 from Gina K. Designs. I am not sure where the sentiment came from but it is an absolute favorite!

Used some distressed ink and masking technique there we have it a single layer with lots of white! I was having so much fun with it I made a set of three. Enjoy and see you soon!
