Peace on Earth
This card was designed using the brand new Creative Worship Clear Stamp Set, Peace on Earth (designed by Krista Hamrick) available on pre-order from Sweet ‘nSassy Stamps.
I love the images in this set- perfect for cards, Bible Art Journaling, home décor as well as scrapbooking and other crafts.
I incorporated the Freshly Made Sketches #304 Sketch Challenge (used scoring for the horizontal center layer- hard to see in the photo), the CAS Colours and Sketches #239 “Colors" Challenge and the Happy LittleStampers September Christmas "Anything Goes- optional twist Sparkle” Challenge into the design.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the dove image from Peace on Earth with Versafine™ onyx black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image using ink from markers (fresh fig, always artichoke and tangerine tango) along with a gray watercolor pencil for the dove’s feathers (use a water brush to dilute the pencil) and fussy-cut around the edges. Once dry, apply shimmer to the dove with a clear glitter pen. Add the fussy cut dove with dimensional foam onto a die cut circle from white cardstock and layer the white circle onto a circle die cut from fig cardstock.
2). On a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of white cardstock, score two lines at the top and bottom of the area for the horizontal panel in the sketch (hard to see in the photo). Ink the "Peace" along with the "on earth" sentiments and star image from the Peace on Earth Clear Stamp Set with Versafine™ onyx black ink, stamp onto the panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Color the images with the same markers and apply shimmer to the letters and stars with a clear glitter pen.
3). Layer the scored background panel onto a piece of artichoke cardstock, trim and mount onto fig cardstock, trim and mount onto a white card base. Add the fussy cut dove circle element with dimensional foam onto the card front.
4). Add the few embellishments with Nuvo™ Jewel Grey Mist drops to finish off the card.
The colors are a bit non-traditional for Christmas but I had fun creating this CAS Mixed Media card!
