Serenity... what many of us wish for

I'm really into the swing of the Clean and Simple style of card at the moment, thanks to the Less is More Challenge.  So, here's my second submission for this week's monochrome challenge. 

I wanted to try something different for this card so I combined 3 separate stamped images into the design with careful placement.  I used Memento Cottage Ivy ink, two stamps from the Insignia Stamps set by Basic Grey and a sentiment from Hero Arts.

After stamping I used a pale green Spica Glitter Pen over the images to give them a subtle shimmer.  Sadly this isn't showing up in the photo but it is a great effect IRL, but you'll have to take my word for it !

I didn't think I had another LIM card in me this week, but sometimes inspiration just hits you and as I was tidying up my desk ready to make another card I came across the Basic Grey set and the rest... as they say.. is history.
