A Quiet Day Card Set
I'm stopping in today to share a card set featuring my Art Impressions Windows to the World stamp, Garden window. I had previously stamped these images last spring onto Bristol cardstock. When (rarely) I've had occasion to travel, I simply take a watercolor brush, a small tin cup and my Inktense Watercolor Pencils. This allows me to color in the small spaces of time between a comittment and allows an activity to de-stress and unwind.
I just recently decided to use my HoneyBee Cherish stamp set to finish these cards with a flourish. The sentiment was stamped in Black Archival Ink and the flowers in a pink dye ink. Using my SSS Stitched Squares dies, I die cut the stamped image and a pink cardstock background. It's a nice finish.
These five will go into the stash and become one of a set. I've more of these Window to the World stamped images to finish up. I'm hoping to get them assembled and pictures posted soon.
I'm so glad I picked up my small set of Intense Pencils. I've just loved traveling with them and they are small enough that they don't take a lot of space. What do you take on trips to craft? Anything? I will wish you well to finish one of the those projects that have been hanging around your craft table.
I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:
