Another Peace card...

Are you tired of this bird set yet? Well, rest assured that this is the last one for a little bit :) I used the same principle as THIS card, but reversed the cardstock colors so the wings are lighter.

I matted one of the tags from Willoughby with brown to really set it off. I inked up the snowy swirl and stamped off before stamping on the tag.

I then added the eyelet and a bit o' ribbon. Everything is popped up on foam tape for a little dimension. To finish it all off, I got out my trusty glitter pen and hightlighted the snowflakes & swirls, the bird, and even the sentiment.

Stamps: Peace, Ready Set Snow

Paper:
Willoughby SWIC & Cardstock

Ink:
Burnt Umber Palette

Other:
Copper eyelet, Reece Ribbon, Stardust clear gel pen, foam tape

This particular patterned paper is one of my favorites... isn't pretty? And I'm thinking about this bird (dove)... I believe it would make a great eagle for a patriotic or masculine card merely be coloring it appropriately.

What do you think?

This is so pretty!! What a wonderful job you did. I haven't gotten the Willoughby paper as most of the projects I've seen with it haven't really appealed to me, but this is awesome!! Might reconsider it!

I so love all the cards you've done using this set. They are so elegant. I can visualize the bird flying off the card. Keep them coming!

Barb, you are a BAD influence! :) I would've never looked twice at these birds except for your creations. Brilliant - I love how you stacked the wings. It's good to be home from vacation so that I can visit your blog again!
