WWC80 - Heidi's Clean & Simple "Water" Theme Challenge

The hostess for today's Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is Heidi Weaver!  Heidi is presenting a clean and simple challenge with a "water" theme.  Clean and simple is a much debated technique, but for this challenge it is cut and dry.  Our Watercooler Artists' team got together and created the following rule of thumb:

Either a single layer upon which we stamp or a base with a single layer upon which we stamp. Since we use embellishments for any other type of card, no embellishments or die-cuts or anything except the simplicity of stamping for the "clean & simple". That gives a clear reason for its name. And what is simpler than stamping? That will allow heat embossing since, if one decides to use a colour, heat embossing would show better than simple stamping. But no e f embossing. Clean and simple.

It's easy to follow and gives you a good idea of what we'll be looking for if you link up to our challenge.

There are lots of different ways in which you can use water for your creation.  You can see from all the wonderful sample created by our Watercooler Artists, just how varied simple stamping can be.  As usual, if you click on the name under each card, you can visit the blog post to see details on how the card was created.   We begin with Heidi's water scene:

And now it's your turn.  You can join us by linking up your creation with the InLinkz at the bottom of this challenge.
