Peet *Day 5*

Well, today is our last day of inspiration with Peet so I saved one of my all-time favorite cards of hers for you. Take a look: The script, the flower, the gingham, the circular element, the stitching... this card is a testament to what makes Peet sooooo great!
Here is my take. I went with different colors but a similar design:


And isn't this bird stamp, Penny Black 4157K Nature's Day, so fun?!
Wanna see some incredible stamping with this image?? visit Elizabeth's blog HERE!

For my card, I began by stamping Penny Black 4157K Nature's Day with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on white cardstock. I colored the image using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Markers and Copic markers. After coloring, I cut out the image. The card base was distressed with Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I stamped Penny Black 1999L Letter Background with Antique Linen Distress Ink, removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping. The multi-colored strip of paper behind the circle was colored using Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, and Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

Thanks soooo much for visiting this week. I have been truly honored to share Peet's cards!!! And I hope you'll stop by tomorrow, I have a set of 3 monochromatic cards to share with ya. Happy Friday!
