Getting inky...

...the challenge over at Less Is More this week is a one layer challenge using ink.

This is a technique I have used before although not that often. I have simply sponged some Adirondack ink in Butterscotch around a circle and then stamped a leafy swirl from Flourishes LLC.

It does feel like autumn is in the air, especially when I walk to work early in the morning, I just love this time of year.

Well, I hope I can squeeze in a bit more time in my craft room this weekend. Fingers crossed I will be back soon!
