All is Calm



Looking outside today, this is what the weather looked like for awhile.  It was so good to see the sun and the blue sky.  Didn't last long enough though.  Anyways, I noticed that the card I have been posting lately are blue.  I am not feeling 'blue' these days...guess it is my love of the blue distress inks and wanted to play with them.  I was playing along with the Featured Stamper challenge today at Splitcoast.
I stamped the winter image from Penny Black called Snowy Park with Memento black then embossed it.  Next, I rubbed on distress inks then, using my water pen, highlighted the trees.  Since the ink is water soluble, the water dilutes it making it look like snow on the trees.  I added the sentiment All is Calm and embossed it with clear.  I then used an embossing folder to create the bkg.
So glad you came by to take a look today.  Sure hope that maybe, you are enjoying sunny skies too.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Distress inks/ eb folder Provo/ eb powder/ Memento black
