Isn't that a great wish? Peace on earth? I've been listening to a great song by Casting Crowns for the last couple of weeks. Listen to I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day! It touches my heart in a way I can't explain. (Casting Crowns does an amazing job with a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Great song! Anyway, that is what inspired this card. Mo's has this great image Ragged Angel. She is so sweet.
I colored this beauty with my Prismacolor pencils. I'm pleased with her skin again and the colors. I've used some colors I haven't used before and I like the vintage feel of them.
The papers are from MME. I love their papers. This collection is called Lost and Found. I found mine at Hobby Lobby. I used mine up, I'll be going back for more very soon, like this week!! The back right panel is embossed with my Cuttlebug embossing folder "Snowflake". I distressed all the edges by running them over my brown ink pad. I added some twine, it has a rustic feel that I thought went well with this image and the papers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid. I just received a new order and I can't wait to play with them more.
I printed the words from the original poem and made a tag. I think its a great size to be used as a bookmark.
Here's the inside.
The top panel shows off the gorgeous design papers. I printed all the sentiments from my computer. I don't know what color I ended up using, but its somewhere between a brown and grey. A little softer than black. It goes with the image, the song and the feel I was going for.
Here's the writing panel. I had to show off the companion for the design paper.
The back shows off the design paper and my custom stamp.
