LIM week 34 - a sketch

For the challenge on Less is More this week Mandi and Chrissie have set a sketch. This fitted with a technique I have seen lots of Limettes do and wanted to try. Masked off my card and then using ink dusters put down a square of ink. Stamped a silhouette stamp over the top. Added a PTI sentiment which I thought went with the image, as they look like they may be singing as they march along. Relatively painless this week for LIM then!
I'd also like to enter the card into the Allsorts challenge - Keep it simple.

I got this stamp at a fair in the summer - haven't used it yet but you've encouraged me to get it onto a card. Love this simple design Lynn. The stamped square sets off the silhouettes perfectly.
