Jeanne's challenge today was to use at least 5 stamps on our card. This isn't unusual for me, so I pushed myself way out of my comfort zone and used multiple stamps to create a one-layer collage grunge card. Hey, that's way out of several comfort zones!
In hindsight maybe I should have stamped the text in Smokey Grey and the scratches in Sepia, but what you see is what you get.
A2 white base.
I stamped En Francais in Versafine Sepia.
RubberStamp Avenue Eiffel Tower, Versafine Black.
Sponged Brushed Corduroy, Forest Moss, Stormy Sky.
IO Distress, Versafine Smokey Grey.
Paris postmark from French Foliage, black.
Swallow from Dragonfly Laser - black.
Verve sentiment - black.
I used an acrylic block as one last stamp to add a yellow background to the sentiment with Mustard Seed.

Oooh la la, this is fabulous! I don't see that you needed to do anything different - this looks great as is! Stamping OLC's is out of my comfort zone too, but boy you sure nailed this one. It inspires me to maybe try my hand at one as well. Thanks for sharing!
