Peace Within swap card


Good morning!  I am feeling a LOT perkier today.  I slept well again last night and have sort of caught up on emails, orders, etc.  I need to finish getting ready for my Technique Class tonight…my studio definately needs cleaned up…it is a mess from working on swaps before I left!

Here is a design that I made for Sherrill Graff’s swap cards a couple months ago.  She hired me to make 20 cards for her to take to Convention.  I decided to use one of my favorite new sets, Peace Within.

I started with a base card of Dusty Durango (othewise known as Brent Steele if you were at Convention!  lol!)  Then I took a layer of Always Artichoke and ran it thru the Big Shot with my Texturz Plate.  I added a layer of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper matted on Crushed Curry cardstock.  For the focal piece, I stamped the basket image from Peace Within with Stazon Black on Shimmer White cardstock, then watercolored with my Stampin’ Up! markers and AquaPainter.  I distressed the edges with my Distressing Tool, then layered it on Dusty Durango cardstock.  I added the greeting stamped with Dusty Durango on Shimmer White, then punched with the large Oval Punch and layered on the Scallop Oval punch from Always Artichoke cardstock.  Finally, I added 1/2 a Modern Tag punched from Crushed Curry with Gold Mini Brad to the front.

I’m happy with how it turned out!
