Living Water...


Happy Release Day!!!! Yes, today is the day that you can buy the brand new 'Ask, Seek, Knock' and 'Quiet Waters' from Our Daily Bread Designs!!!! I was also inspired by this week's Week-end Sketch Challenge for this card.

I decided to use 'Quiet Waters', a soothing stamp set with a huge range of possiblities! I started with a base of green bazzill, layered with blue and white (pierced) and some pretty Basic Grey 'Wisteria' paper from the 6x6 Paper Pack. Then I stamped the image in black stazon onto watercolour paper and then cut out the stream with oval nestabilities. It has been coloured using markers/ink pads and a blender pen. The scallops have been pierced and then the whole panel has been layered on a piece of green bazzil that has been cut using the Label 4 Nestabilities. In keeping with the water theme I've added white Kaisercraft pearls to the main image panel, a swirl corner embellishment (humour me and think of it as a waterlily), some Clear Dew Drops and some white organdy ribbon that I've pleated to look like a rippling stream!!
On the inside of the card I've added a white panel for writing, some more Wisteria paper and used Close to Cocoa to stamp the verse.
Hop on over to the other girls to see their amazing work....

Kathy, your card is just beautiful. It is so elegant looking. The gathered ribbon and the nesties shape really complement your image. Pretty! Pretty!
I also wanted to thank you for following my blog and not giving up with me. I have had some interruptions in my stamping over the last two months. I am back and working on some cards now.
Hugs,
