Encouraging words...

For this week's Design Team Challenge call from Serendipity Stamps
we were asked to create a card that offers encouragement.
Please visit .... Amy,  Anyaand Lynda to see what they created for this  challenge!

I love, love, love quotes and always have trouble resisting adding to my collection.... I thought this worked well as an encouragement type card that could lend itself to many situations. I chose colors that are soft and soothing and matched up with the natural/woody feel of the image. Simple and quick coloring with Copics on the image. I also airbrushed a little Copic Color before popping my pieces out the Nesties. Both Nestie shapes are popped up using foam tape. Final card size is 5 1/2" square. 

  • Stamps: All stamps are by Serendipity Stamps - Nest in Tree Set #222QCL
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Kraft,
  • Other: SU Taffeta Ribbon, Misc. Button, Copics/ABS, Cuttlebug Folder, Spellbinder's Labels 17 and Oval Nesties
