Peace & Tranquility Card

This card was created using the "Thai Buddha" stamp set from Artistic Outpost.

100b0850

Materials:

Stamp Set:

  • Thai Buddha

Cardstock:

  • The Far East Stack (DCWV)
  • Neutrals Cardstock Stack (DCWV)

Ink:

  • Black pigment ink

Accessories:

  • glass beads (Michael’s)
  • Platinum Stickles
  • Pewter Perfect Pearls

After stamping the images on one of the Far East patterned papers with black pigment ink, I used a small paintbrush and lightly dusted the ink with Pewter Perfect Pearls.  I "colored" the pots with Platinum Stickles.

The strings of beads came attached to the satin ribbon, so that part was easy.  The Far East Stack is pefect for this stamp set.  I’m finding that photographing anything with sheen or sparkles is difficult, so even though the picture doesn’t do justice to the card, I was pleased with the results.

Today is my birthday (I’m 52!)…yesterday I was notified that the neurosurgeon I’ve been referred to will see me the first part of June for possible disk replacement surgery in my neck-I have five crushed disks that have caused a chronic headache for over 3 1/2 years, so I’m hoping that he will do the surgery AND that the headache will finally go away, or at least be diminished.  I’m getting kind of tired of it…so maybe next year on my birthday I won’t have a headache!

Thanks for looking!

  2. Happy Birthday girl!!!! I love what you did with the pots, that looks so darn cool! Best of luck with the neck/headache stuff, no fun to be in pain all the time 🙁

  3. Happy Birthday, Anita; mine was last Sunday!!! I might be a little older, but I’ll never tell!!! 😉
    Sure hope the surgery works for you; I can’t imagine having a headache for so long; I wouldn’t even be functioning on any level, I’m sure!
