A Quiet Joy

Can you hear the quiet? Can you feel it? I can only imagine the peacefulness, joy, and calmness of the moment. Enjoy...

   Country Morning
   Itty Bitty Backgrounds

   Rich Razzleberry A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), 5-1/8 x 3-7/8, 3/4 x 3-7/8

   Island Indigo
   Rich Razzleberry
   Soft Suede
   Whisper White Craft
   Tuxedo Black Memento
   White Gel Pen


   Iridescent Ice Glitter
   2-Way Glue Pen

First, I added Island Indigo with my brayer from the top toward the middle of the card. I always started rolling the brayer right off the page and then downward to pull the ink toward the middle. This gets the deeper shade of blue at the top and a lighter shade as it moves downward.

Second, I did the same with Rich Razzleberry, but pulled the color from the bottom up toward the middle. Since I am right-handed, I just flipped my panel. 

Third, I used a sponge to fill in and blend the color of the two in the middle until I had what I liked. I did make several of these panels at the same time, and I was amazed at how closely they resembled each other. There are subtle differences, but mostly the same.

Fourth, I stamped the trees using Soft Suede. Then I added some "snow" on the trees using my white gel pen.

Fifth, I stamped falling snow using Whisper White Craft ink and the background stamp from the Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp set. 

Sixth, I stamped my sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a strip of Whisper White. I tore the top edge. (Always tear paper toward you.)

Seventh, I added glue with the 2-Way glue pen and sprinkled glitter on it. This helped to highlight the slope and draw attention to the sentiment. This step can be skipped if you prefer. Then, I adhered this piece to the bottom of my panel.

The panel was then adhered to a Whisper White panel that was just a hair larger. I wanted the white frame around it.

Lastly, I adhered this panel onto the card front. The extra panel of Whisper White (5-1/4 x 4) is for the inside of the card.

  1. Great tree images and gorgeous sky. I would love to go sit out and look at this scene. The torn edge on the bottom works so perfect too.
