Celtic Doves by Designs by Ryn

Hello lovelies!

Well this card took me a while to make!  I received the lovely doves from Ryn a few weeks ago, and I knew I wanted a sentiment stamp that contained the word 'peace' to go with them.  I found this sentiment at Clarity stamps which I'm really pleased with... but it took a while to arrive!  Then I wanted to make a soft 'sky' for my doves to fly in, so I made a watercolour background which gave me the white 'cloud' spaces I wanted.
I stamped and embossed the doves and filled in the lines with white uniposca pen.  The soft stamping at the top is done with a Chocolate Baroque edge stamp, some of the little circles I added glitter to.  A bow and a few pearls and my card is done!  Hope you like it! :)


Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate all of my visitors and the lovely comments people leave me, it makes my day when I see you have popped by! :) xxxxx

Hey Wendy, the sentiment really does go well with the doves. I can see why you waited. This has a beautiful open feel to it. I really like how you subtly coloured the doves white. It makes them stand out without being too obvious. Just gorgeous!

Hi Wendy a lovely design with Ryn's Celtic Doves. The sentiment and background are perfect with them. You've used one of my favorite stamps from CB, in fact I was stamping with it this afternoon.
