Serene Scene

This gorgeous Pelican is from Doodle Pantry. I really debated on this one because I made it for a girlfriend going through a hard time. She loves any kind of bird, bug, animal, etc. At first I thought a Pelican would be more of a masculine card but with the scrollworks blush background (a great feminine background) I think its perfect for her. She loves relaxing at the lake and watching the birds. I used prisma markers and then embossed it and sponged the sky and water. The inside says "Wishing you peace in a time of trouble". I've entered this into three challenges, the first is at Crafters Digital Art Centre, Doodle Pantry is hosting an embellishment challenge. (If you're not a member I'm not sure the link will work for you, its free to sign up) The challenge is to do something with one or all of the corners of your project. The second is Drunken Stampers Challenge and its Serenity Now- show how you like to relax. The last is Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and its to do a clean and simple card. Two pieces of ribbon, background and image, pretty simple.
Stamp: Doodle Pantry Pelican Dreams
Paper: Very vanilla, basic black, blush blossom, whisper white
Ink: ballet blue, bashful blue, blush blossom
Other: prisma markers, ribbon, cuttlebug scrollworks, spellbinders label 4
