No Patterned Paper!

The theme on My Time to Craft this week is to use No Patterned Paper. I used the resist technique on my card with some botanical stamps, Versamark clear ink and clear embossing powder, then Black Soot Distress Ink rubbed over. I then stamped in the gaps in black with a different stamp, and matted the main image on top.
