I will write Peace

Hi, I'm on the Quietfire Design Blog today with these two beauties:

Hop on over there how I went from the first card to the second and what supplies I used.

Worry Less this year

Continuing with my pray more and worry less determination, I made this very CAS card using this beautiful Corrie Ten Boom (if you haven't, you should read The Hiding Place) quote by Quietfire Design paired with a simple flourished tulip also by Quietfire Design. 

I used the Misti to stamp the tulip in Distress Inks and pulled the ink in with a watercolor brush.  I think stamped again to make the image sharper.  The corner is sponged using the same colors and then splattered with water.  Loving the touch of soft color.

Challenges I am playing in:

Going back to old stamps

Hope you are having a great start to a new year!  I started it with a new tangent to my ever-growing hobby collection.  I've started to do lettering on some finished wood pieces and I am loving it!  Check out my facebook page Yours Truly and my instagram account @yourstrulybydiana to see my newest pieces.  But I haven't let go of my love of papercrafting - and I'm even playing with some very old stamp sets.  This little chickadee was one of my first stamp purchases from Our Daily Bread Desigsn, now Divinity Designs.

But my tools have certainly grown since I bought this stamp set and now I can watercolor and then use my Misti to stamp the image again to get a nice crisp image.  I also used some Koi watercolor brushes combined with watercolor pencils.  I kept it pretty simple to highlight this cute image and wonderful verse.

Thanks so much for looking!
