Peace and Joy

imgn0262Hello, everyone! ‘Peace and Joy’ is one of the many cards that are to be shown on my page during the following days until Christmas.
It is a clean and simple card (CAS). And I really like the way it turned out.

The card base is made of 280 g kraft recycled card. I have discovered there’s a Romanian craft shop where you can find it at a very good price and high quality. And I highly recommend it.
Onto the card base I stamped – using Docrafts Artiste dye ink pad in ‘Chocolate’ – one of the stamps from last year’s Docrafts stamp sets ‘Folk Christmas’. Once it was dry, I added colour using some Papermania watercolour pencils. When finished colouring, I wrote the sentiment ‘peace and joy’ using an Artiste gel pen in white. With the same pen, I added a few dots on the robin’s tail’s feathers to create interest.
In order to increase the focus on the area where the stamped image is, I tied some white twine in a bow, glued it with some glossy accents and I trimmed a thin piece of burgundy card and glued it as to look like a frame.

Hope you enjoyed reading this new post and look forward to having you back on my page.

All the best,
Talida
