Dove of Peace Christmas, Just Add Ink #473
I know, I haven't been posting much lately. I am working on Christmas cards, but otherwise I am having a great time making embroidered, quilted wall hangings for my family for Christmas.
This stamp is retired, but I didn't get to use it much way back when I bought it and it just seemed perfect for this card.
The DSP is Brightly Gleaming. So many beautiful, metallic patterns! Then there is the other side. Also beautiful patterns, but not metallic, so a very nice and usable pack.
So, my inspiration this week was from Just Add Ink. Check them out here.
As you can see, I chose Metallics and twine. My bird is also embossed in Copper, which of course makes is super easy to color. I didn't take a lot of time with the coloring this time. I just used my Aqua Painter and ink pads put lightly put down just 2 colors, Soft Seafoam and Pretty Peacock. The leaves are from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits, it just seemed to fit in.
I also added some Frost Shimmer paint, if you look close I think you can see it on the leaves. It's hard in a photo, but beautiful in person. Sorry to say, the gold twine is also retired, couple of years ago I think, but I'd love more metallic twine.
As an alternative you could stamp the dove on vellum, color the back side and have a whole different look.
Thanks for stopping by.
