Playing with ink

There seem to be a few opinions on exactly what a One Layer Card is. I have always understood it to be a single sheet of card, folded in half. .. in fact no other layers. I did think that the odd embellishment was allowed as that would not consist of an actual layer. I don't know where one would look for a definition, but this is my interpretation.
I masked all but the middle square of the card and inked the exposed part in a variety of colours, ending with a marbling roller stamp from Rollagraph in gold pigment ink. I then overprinted this with the Penny Black Falling Stars stamp in Stazon and finally added the Penny Black sentiment.
I really like unfussy cards.
