Peaceful Soul





Marion Vagg is this week's Muse for Muse Challenge #105



The inspiration from Marion's card combined with this weeks CASology cue inspired me to create this card:


I so love this image from Memory Box, and Marion's wonderful card put me in mind of it right away.   I used just one colored ink along with black as a neutral.  The image is embossed with black EP.  The hills were masked and sponged with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. The sentiment is from PTI's Peaceful Garden stamped with VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  Probably the fastest card I ever made, and one of my favorites.

Snowing again here in the northeastern part of the US... I guess I was also inspired by the weather. Keep warm and craft on.  Thanks for stopping by.
