Only Two Colors

Can you make a beautiful card with only two colors?  That is a challenge at Stamploration so I gave it a try.  And the answer is 'Yes' .

I know that 6 of the last 8 cards I have posted have been done with either Distress Oxide Inks or with a stencil or both but I am having so much fun with them. Soon Autumn will be over and I will have to put them away (until I buy new stencils and new colors).
This card was made with a Stamploration stencil and Wild Honey and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks.  I have never splattered with inks before but I love the card by Becca Cruger  so much, I had to try it.
After rubbing the two distress inks on another piece of white cardstock, I cut out "thanks" with a Memory Box die.
