Merry Monday Challenge!

Lesley over at the blog Always Playing with Paper has a Christmas challenge each week and this week I managed to get a card made.
I used a In the Making stamp set to make this card. I stamped the doves on watercolor cardstock with Seafoam White embossing powder. I then sprayed the cardstock with water then I used my Ranger Stonewash reinker and a waterbrush to apply reinker around each dove because the cardstock was wet the reinker flowed around on the paper creating a pretty neat background. I did the same thing with the word Peace. I had cut out the Peace word once the cardstock had dried. I matted the dove square with a piece of glossy cardstock cut out with Spellbinder Fleur di Lis squares. I used 3 strips of Be Creative tape and Glitter Ritz Gunmetal to add an interesting background.
Thanks Lesley for the challenge 2 Christmas cards done about 60 more to go! LOL
