another one for Susan

Planning this card for Susan, I had a dilemma.  I knew I wanted to use the Serendipity Stamps hollyhock, and I also wanted a fence image to go with it.  But...I wanted to keep this a clean, one-layered card. 

After much puzzling--and one ugly disaster!--I hit upon this solution. 
I die cut this fence from Spellbinders and used it as a mask, sponging around it with Sky Blue and Moss Green.  Then I stamped my hollyhock with watercolor pencils and added a bit of calligraphy.

Thanks for stopping by!
