CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Peace and Comfort

Happy Sunday everyone!! It is my turn over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog.

Today I am sharing a card I created using CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Peace and Comfort set. However, I wanted something more on my card so I used the leaves in a bit of a different way.

Instead of just stamping a single leaf on the flowers, I made some leaf branches.

I stamped both of the solid leaves in the stamp set in green, connecting the two in the middle. Then I took a green marker and created a stalk that kept the leaves together, as well as shaded in some detail.

Next I stamped the flowers in a peach color and used then used the over stamp in a coral color to make the rose. I stamped leaves onto the flowers using a different color green then the leaf branches and used the coordinating outline in a third green color.

I used one of the heart stamps in Love and Coffee  and a purple marker to create some little yellow flowers.

I then splashed the background with yellow, lavender, and gold mist spray. When it was dry, I layered some paper scraps over the front. I used a masking technique to emboss the sentiment from the Peace and Comfort set onto a scrap of white card stock in gold.

I popped the sentiment up from my card using foam adhesive.

I actually had a lot of fun looking at my stamps to see if I could use them in a slightly different way. I hope this card inspires you to take a look at your stamps and see what you can come up with.
