one layer challenge

This is a small card only 3.5 x 3.5 inches square. I've been inspired by Barbara Gray, which if you watch her on C&C you will instantly see. However, although the tree stamp is from Clarity Barbara's stamp range, I don't yet have a speedball brayer so I had to daub instead. I tried to use the brayer I have but it was no use! I used a small nestie for the moon and the sentiment is from a Paula Pascale set.
I've made this card for the Less is More challenge who want to see "one layer".

This is lovely Linby. Although I have a brayer I often daub ink as it gives such a subtle effect. Fab work Linby,
Love Sarita xx

A fabulous card, love the daubing. I'm a great fan of Barbara's too and have had a Speedball brayer for years. I'm only just getting to grips with it - takes loads of practise and perseverance, but well worth the effort and great fun.Sue.x
