Embrace Peace

Well, this morning I woke up and realized I didn't have anything to show you. Well, I have about 10 cards, but none I can show you right now. So I moseyed on into my stamp room and fumbled around for a bit... and this is the card that was born.

I started with this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, and decided I needed to use more of the Bella Rose samples Lisa sent. So I pulled out my Nestabilities long rectangles and cut and embossed the white rectangle and then cut a Scallop rectangle mat from the chocolate Bella Rose paper. I stamped the long stemmed flower from Embrace Life three times in Memento Rich Cocoa and then the grasses stamp for a little greenery. The image is colored with Copic markers and then I used a Sepia Copic Multiliner to make little dotted details around parts of the image for interest. I took a Copic marker and colored up to the embossed edge for a nice little pink border around the image panel. Then I added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers and white dots to the scallops with my white Signo gel pen.

The sentiment is a 1" circle colored with a Copic marker and then I stamped the Peace sentiment from Wonderful Wishes in the center and added some dots with the brown multiliner. I added a small Page Pebble over the sentiment and then attached it to some Styled Silver and tied it to the card with chocolate polytwill. The corners are done with a fiskars corner punch, and then I added some dots to each scallop.
