Merry Monday #130 Peace On Earth





I decided to make a simple one layer card using the a clear block (E) stamped in Sahara Sand ink and then I inked up a stamp from Lovely As A Tree and stamped off once after applying Always Artichoke to it.  I stamped three times on the background I created to make it shadowy and then stamped by tree again full on with ink.
I added Peace on Earth in Soft Suede to keep with the serene of the scene!
I hope you have a lovely Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Sue, Thanks for comment. This is probably the simplest, fastest card I gave ever made. I inked the clear block E with Sahara Sand ink and stamped right down on the white cardstock. I then placed a sheet of scratch paper along bottom of that image to mask the bottom on the card base. I inked the tree and then stamped off once on some scratch paper and then stamped inside my rectangle. I did this twice more to make those background trees. Then just stamped the tree in full on on front and same with sentiment. That is all. Hope this helps.. have a wonderful week.
