I Believe - May Each Treasured Memory
I calligraphed this song a while back and it started floating through my mind again. I know the only way to get it out is to put it down on paper...
I'm using a couple of A Way With Words dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Calligraphic Elements 1" and "Believe" also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE
Also using a quote and sentiment stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design
("May Each Treasured Memory"); ("10 Tiny Sentiments" 10pce set)
Scored, and folded my white card. (5"w x 7"h)
Stamped the Penny Black "Gentle Whisper" on 90# HP watercolor paper using my Misti and Distress pads ("Victorian Velvet" all over the flowers and then here and there with "Wilted Violet; "Forest Moss" on the leaves and stems and then hitting here and there with "Pine Needles" and "Shabby Shutters") misting with water and stamping, then misting the paper with water to get the stamped image to bleed. Dried. Reinked my stamp and stamped without misting. Trimmed the page down to fit my card with a border around. Inked the edges of the watercolor paper with the Velvet and misted, dried and adhered to card front.
Die cut the "i" which is actually an exclamation mark in the "Calligraphic Elements 1" set (available on Quietfire Design HERE), and the "Believe" (available on Quietfire Design HERE) from black cardstock. Adhered to front.
Stamped the rest of the quote using Just Rite "Brayton" alphabet set using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossing.
On the inside: Stamped the flower (Artful Stamper "Painted Flower") using the same colors as the front flower. Repeated to add the second flower.
Stamped the quote ("May Each Treasured Memory") and sentiment ("10 Tiny Sentiments") with the black and clear embossed
