May Every Sunrise Bring You Hope

Today I'd like to share a card I recently made using Northwoods Rubber Stamps, NO-090 cling set, 'Cattails, Birds & Water Silhouettes'.

This set has three images and three sentiments which gives you a lot of nice choices to design several variations.

 I selected one of the larger images - with the lake scene.  After stamping it I used my Copic markers for coloring.  Even though it looks like just water and yellow/orange sky... for me the shading required 16 different markers. 

When completed I trimmed the edges and matted it and the sentiment in a deep burnt orange solid cardstock.  I made the card base out of a coordinating blue cardstock and covered it with the slightly patterned yellow paper.  Next I secured the image, then the sentiment, slightly overlapping.  Lastly I added the triple wrap of twine at the fold and secured with a small single bow. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
