Dove of Peace

I have a few minutes before my class so I'll try to sneak a blog in!

This is another card that I did with the W.I.S.H. or smoosh technique earlier in the week.  I was inspired by a card by Sandi MacIver.   She used a different background technique. (I would like to try that one too.)

The colors of re-inker used for the background were Baja Breeze & Pear Pizzazz with a little Frost White Shimmer paint dropped on there for good measure.

The dove was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with White Embossing Powder & cut out.

I stamped the word with VersaMark and embossed with silver Embossing Powder.  I dragged the edges over the VersaMark pad and also embossed with silver.  (It works best to do this one long & one short side at a time.)

The branch in the bird's mouth is from the Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch with 3 of the smallest rhinestones.  I used a piece of last year's silver elastic cord (wish they had brought that back!) knotted 3 times and taped to the back.
