Quiet Day

I featured the set Peace Within for the blog tour and made three different cards with the set. I love the set, but when I first sat down with it in preparation for the tour I was really at a loss of what to do. I looked at the two picture stamps and two sentiments and thought, oh my, why did I choose to feature this set? But I'm so glad I did. It has actually forced me to look at the set with new eyes.

In today's post, you will see that I totally altered the look of the chair by removing the cat and the pillow. I used a marker to outline the chair so I could leave out the cat and the pillow - I wanted to cut the chair out and have it empty on an empty dune. I stamped it and then just drew in the lines for the rest of the chair where the cat and the pillow had been located. I used a brayer to do the sand and the sky, stamped the grasses with Inspired by Nature and then attached the chair with dimensionals. The sentiment came from the set Hope Happens.

Looking at this card makes me long to go sit with a book, all alone and soak up the nature around me.

I hope you enjoy my take on this stamp and that you too will think outside the box when you look at your stamps.

Thanks again to everyone who stopped by my blog during the Royal Blog Tour. Happy Stamping.
