Peace

I've been wanting to revisit a card I made 4 years ago.  It has always been one of my favorites; I like the mood it invokes.  Goodness knows we'll all need a little peace in the coming weeks!  Here is my newer version, just updating the trees in the foreground and the sentiment.


supplies: white, green, and Schoolhouse Red card stock, Tim
Holtz Woodlands and Holiday Words dies, Penny Black Christmas Cottage wood stamp, Zig markers to color, My Favorite Things Snow Drifts die, cardinals from Impression Obsession Birch Tree die set, salty ocean and peacock feathers distress inks, ink blending tool, Simon's Falling Snow stencil, Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste, adhesive foam squares

I stamped and colored the cottage, then sponged in the sky with distress inks.  Next I overlaid a snowy slope, and stenciled on my falling snow, using glimmer paste for some sparkle.  When that was dry, I added the panel to a longer than usual card (about 6" X 4 1/4"), then affixed my sentiment, trees, and birds.

As always, thank you for stopping by to visit!

What a great way to get more use out of a stamp by adding those wonderful trees in the foreground. Such a pretty card to look at, Lin.
