The Peace of God

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Shady Allure and Serendipity Stamps - The Peace of God
Good morning friends!  I thought I’d pop in to share some more oval goodness with you in the way of a landscape oriented card and some beautiful textures.   For a change of pace I reached for a rich blue and embossed with a white core paper using Spellbinders Shady Allure.  After buffing with some sand paper, the lovely texture of the embossing folder comes out and serves as the base element in my card.  On top I layered Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance and ink embossed the detail by sponging over the openings in the die template – yet another way to distinguish the detail.  My next layer, Spellbinders Labels Forty Seven is placed there just to peek out from underneath the oval from Spellbinders Oval Floral.  Just that little bit of color is enough to separate the layers.  I’ve had this lovely sentiment from Serendipity Stamps for quite some while – it’s called May the Peace of God.  It’s a fair sized stamp that fills the oval and the navy ink adds another layer of contrast!

I sponged around most layers with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.  The final piece was an accent on the upper right hand corner of the card to add some interest – I used Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Four to cap off the design.    The card is 8″ x 6″

    It seems that I am always following in Margaret Driscoll’s steps and I know she is from the UK so we probably will never meet. Just found it interesting on several occasions. Guess we both just so much appreciate your fine work Becca!
    This is so elegant and just never thought of navy blue! Love the sentiment and all the layers.

    Very pretty, Becca.

    Also, I notice now with the blog change in order for us to leave a comment we have to put in our name/email/blog every time. Is this something new? For those of us that comment a lot it was always nice to just make the comment and those fields were already auto populated.ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenJune 21, 2015 - 9:30 am

      Hi there Bunny,
      I’m so sorry to hear this, you are the first to mention it and I agree, it would definitely be easier if that info repopulated. I’m curious to see if it happens to everyone. Is there anyone out there who does ‘not’ have to put their name and email each time they leave a comment? Can you let me know in your comment? I’ll be working on this to see if I can find out why or if it is intended to happen that way.ReplyCancel
