I am hosting the Clean and Simple Challenge this week at Splitcoaststampers where I have asked the participants to use 1/3rd of the card only, and that the card be a single layer. 

I used the middle of my card, stamping with some Concord & 9th stamps called Winter Wear on Ranger Distress Watercolour Paper, as I wanted the texture. I used the 8 1/2 x 11 size, but the 4.25 x 5.5 could be sued and glued to a card base. I tested a few colours from my Zig Clean Colour Pens, and picked the middle colour, being blue.
 I stamped the images using Ranger Archival Ink in Cobalt and water coloured using Zig Clean Colour Pens in Blue changing the colours with the amount of water I used. I coloured the fur on the hat using my Uni Posca Paint Pen. 
To finish, I stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink in Vermillion, which fits perfectly in the space under the hat.

Thanks so much for visiting today, and I hope you have enjoyed this single layer Clean and Simple Card.
