Total Peace

Hello and welcome.  Today I am sharing a card I've made for both the Splitcoast Hope You Can Cling To Peaceful Pink challenge and this month's Craft A Scene Mountain challenge.

I started out by stamping my main image from one of Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company newest stamp sets called On The Fly being released on October 24th, in memento black onto MFP snow storm card stock then colored with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender pen.  Once my coloring was finished, I then stippled Tim Holtz broken china, forest moss and milled lavender inks over and around the image before layering and adding some baby brads.  Then I added some random birds and fisherman on the lake in memento black and grass in forest moss.
For my card, I stamped MFP's Cracked Hello set in Tim Holtz tattered rose and scattered straw inks to create a rustic background before adding my colored image popped up on dimensionals.  For the final touches, I then added a die cut sun stippled in wild honey ink popped up on dimensionals, and some Martha Stewart punched hydrangeas and butterfly trio with bling centers along with some pink/gold organdy ribbon from Michael's $1 bins.
Challenges submitted:
I happy with the way my card turned out even if it's a tad lopsided considering I made it while dealing with a nasty migraine.  Thank goodness the meds were semi working.  Well, thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
