absc004 - Peace on Earth
Let There Be Peace on Earth and Let it Begin With Me.
Hello everyone today is Thanksgiving here in America so we are celebrating with a wonderful Turkey dinner and giving thanks for the many blessings we have.
It's also the very first Annabelle Stamps Sketch Contest...Every week there is a Sketch challenge on Friday but the last Friday of the month is the "Contest" sketch and there is a wonderful prize available so you don't want to miss out by not participating in the challenge. You can find all the details on the Annabelle Blog.
For my card today I chose to "flip" the sketch. For this card I used the Holly Branch stamps set. This is a really "versatile" set that can be used in so many different ways. I stamped the sentiment first with Ruby Red ink and colored over part of it with a Basic Black marker. Next I stamped one of the Holly Branches with Versamark ink and embossed it with Detail Silver EP. I stamped another Holly Branch the same way on Whisper White cs but cut that image out. The images were watercolored with ink pads and an Aqua Painter.
I also added some light spatter using the Itty Bitty BG stamp set from SU and Baja Breeze ink stamped off once before stamping onto the white card stock.
Card Stock used: Whisper White, Maroon (Bazzill), My Minds Eye DP-The Merry Days of Christmas line and Parisian Breeze (retired Specialty paper from SU)
Other: Silver Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps), Martha Stewart Loopy border punch, Word Window Punch(SU), Foam Mounting Tape
