Soothing the Soul.

This is my sample card for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today.

The challenge is to use something that reminds us of Paris France, or to use a Fleur de lis. I do not have a Fleur de lis. I do have a die of the Eiffel Tower, but I am not in the mood for that.

Instead I opted to use a flourish stencil which has a similar feel to the Fleur de lis, well sort of!

I taped off an area on my card and proceeded to stencil using Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Peacock Feathers.

In my Mini Misti I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Claire ink in Nocturne and die cut the sentiment using a die called Deckled Ovals. I brushed around the edges of the die with the Fossiized Amber ink, then attached to my card using foam squares.

To finish my card I added a few gems which add a bit of sparkle.

A quick and easy Clean and Simple card. I do hope you enjoyed this card. Following are Affiliate links to the products that I used today. And, do not forget to use my discount code – Kia10 – when shopping at A Colorful Life Designs for the beautiful stencils found there.
