Peace of God

Hi Friends!

I am sharing this card on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Blog today and wanted to share with you here as well.

This card was designed using the Peace of God Clear Stamp Set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) and it always brings a smile to my face when I design with the bird image- my husband and I love to watch birds at our feeders and the Tufted Titmouse (“Tufty”) is one of our favorites!!

I also incorporated the FMS259 Sketch Challenge at Freshly Made Sketches along with the Just Us Girls #366 Photo Inspiration (I used the colors in the photo) into the design- I love both of these weekly challenge sites!

I hope you will find the time to visit us at the Sweet ‘n Sassy Blog as well as visit the other challenge blogs- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the Tufted Titmouse image from SNSS Peace of God Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink and stamp onto white cardstock.

Use a water brush with ink from a craft mat or palette to color the bird image and color directly onto the image for the leaves, berries and branch with water based markers.

Die cut the image using a stitched circle die and also cut two circles from cherry cardstock to layer behind the focal image and create a thin frame.

Stamp the sentiment from SNSS Peace of God Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink onto a panel of white cardstock, score lines for the layers per the sketch, trim and mount onto the cherry card base.

Add the focal image circle with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and have a blessed week, sweet friends!
