SC337....get well wishes


Good Thursday Morning Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card made with this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

This is a great sketch and allows you to use a nice big image, I love it and will be using it again I am sure!

I used a set I have had for awhile and had never inked up. This set is called "Peace Within" from Stampin' Up. I stamped with black stazon onto some very vanilla card stock. I used my aqua painter and ink pads to color in the image. I used crumb cake, soft suede, cajun craze, old olive, pretty in pink, melon mambo, daffodil delight, rose red, and some pumpkin pie. I matted this image with some baja breeze card stock. I used some DS paper from the now retired "vintage springtime" paper pack. I stamped the part of the image that had the pillow in it onto some of the DSP. I cut it out and added it to the image.

The sentiment  comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set and I stamped it with black stazon using my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up. I added some piercing all around the top of the image using my piercing tool and mat pack. I used a bit of crochet trim to wrap around and tie a bow. This is a CAS design not as many layers as I usually do but I still like the design. Sometimes I think you need to keep it simple to let the image shine and this is such a cute, peaceful image I wanted it to shine. I think I would like to curl up with that sweet little kitty in that chair and read a good book or just take a little nap.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
