Peace

Sunday, June 21, 2015

It is a very dreary, dull, and rainy Sunday here today.  It's raining to beat the band and it's so humid that there's a fine sheen of moisture on every surface in my house:  the counters, the floors, yuck.  Unfortunately I live in an old house with no AC to take care of the moisture so I have to wait for the rain to stop to dry things out!   But on to my card...


I was inspired by the colors and the design of the Muse Christmas Visions card this week and tried to recreate the watercolored background by using some stamped images.  The deer die was cut with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and looks really snazzy in real life.  The sentiment die was cut three times and layered together for some dimension.  For my layout I used the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.



Well that's it for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps: Watercolor Wonder (Papertrey Ink)
Paper:  Enchanted Evening (Papertrey Ink); Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer (SU)
Ink:  Enchanted Evening (Papertrey Ink); Bashful Blue (SU)
Accessories:  Vertical Stitched Strips die (My Favorite Things); Leap Deer die (Memory Box); Wet Paint Holiday die (Papertrey Ink)

The "swipes" of paint are the perfect backdrop for this glittery deer. Fab card!

Such a lovely Christmas card. The blues, both on the base and in the watercolor stamps, are so peaceful. Love the stag too. Really great take on the sketch/color inspiration. Bev
