Lily of the Valley

I thought I would carry on with the theme from my last card and try a bit more brayering!  This time I've gone for a more muted colour, but I actually found it more difficult getting the graduation of colour just right.  I worked in from each corner using distress inks, but found with my first few attempts that I couldn't get it too look even - this was my third attempt at this card.

The stamp I've used is from Clarity Stamps and was sent along with my project sheet full of ideas as part of Barbara Grays project club.  Why not check it out as you get a stamp each month to play with and before it's realeased too.

Here's my card which again could be used as a sympathy card:

Materials used:
Coloured with promarkers
Accented with glamour dust - crystal
Sentiment - memories
Distress ink - antique linen

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen - someone special
House of Gilli - flowers
Karens Doodles - spring
Dream Valley - earth tones
Paper Sundaes - anything goes
Fairy Fun Fridays - anything goes
Pixie Cottage - green

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx
