How fun is this???? At first glance, it would appear that the three image blocks and, possibly, the More Mustard portion of the card are separate layers, but they aren't. I masked the card with copy-weight paper (using temporary adhesive), used a sponge to apply Not Quite Navy ink to the top portion, lifted the bottom mask to color that portion of the card with More Mustard ink, and then removed the masks and stamped the three flowers. A ZIG Painty pen was used to draw (very crooked) lines around the three flower blocks. There's a bit of smeared ink but, fortunately, it doesn't show up in the picture as well as it does in real life.

If you don't mind masking, this technique is a good one to employ when you don't have a lot of card stock on hand.
