It's a most wonderful thing to sit in the garden on a quiet spring morning and listen to the birds in the trees, and that's why I find this Penny Black mini-set aptly named as Peaceful Time.
It's another new to me stamp, purchased with the matching die which makes it all the more versatile. I've not always gone for the matching dies in the past, but that's going to change. It's so much easier, especially when it comes to those inner parts where I need to use a craft knife.
I embossed the bird in black and watercolored very simply with my old SU Watercolor Wonder Crayons. For the background and frame I used two different watercolor pieces which were made ahead and sitting in a drawer. Having all kinds of spare backgrounds sure makes a card come together quickly! Even the ivory card base was pre-cut.
Moving right along, I'll have another pre-scheduled and very colorful card on the 15th. It's a busy month! Enjoy your day!
