H2H’s Peace on Earth

This week’s challenge over at the H2H blog is “Peace on Earth”.  This was a hard one for me, at first, because I don’t have any nativity type stamp sets.  So, I had to do some thinking as to how to make that work.  I think I succeeded!  🙂

I grabbed a piece of the watercolor paper, and decided to do a slimline card.  I cut my piece down to 3.5 x 9, and then started ink blending.  I used mostly our water based inks on here, however did not add any extra water.  I used: Glacier, Bluebird, Peacock, Sapphire inks, and then completed the blending with some black soot distress oxide.

Once I finished with the blending, I grabbed my clear shimmer brush and created some splatters, and then added some white dots with a white gel pen.  Next up was some snow banks, made easy with the fancy borders thin cuts and some white daisy cardstock!  I used some thin foam tape behind the top of the hills, and glued the bottom of the hills flat.  It gives it such a unique look!

Once I was done with that, I decided I needed something else for the card.  I couldn’t find a sentiment that was small enough, and understated enough for the card.  The first star I was going to go with, wasn’t quite big enough.  It got lost with some of those larger spots of shimmer brush.  But, I started thinking outside of the box, I mean, that IS how the whole thing got started, right?  I found this fairly perfect ‘star’!  It is actually the asterisk from the Brushed Letters Alphabet!  Stamped it with versa mark ink, and heat embossed it with some silver embossing powder.

I really love how this card turned out!  I hope you like it as well!  I would love to hear your thoughts, should I have stuck with the silver, or should I have gone with gold for the star?

I look forward to hearing from you all!  Thanks for checking out my card!  

Until next time!

    The card is beautiful! I think silver was the right way to go. Love the long sleek look of the winter sky at night with the single bright star standing out.
