Hello friends!
I am popping in with a quick post about this die from Penny Black.

The beauty of this die lies in its clean lines and simplicity.
Here is my first take on it.
Peace

In order to show off the bird, I inked up the background with some simple ink-blending.

I stamped the sentiment in silver. To create interest and motion, I thought it was a good idea to add tied silver strings. And of course, the Platinum Stickles will not hurt, either. 😍

That's it. Thanks for stopping by!

A lovely, peaceful card. The ink blending sure makes the bird pop. Your choice of dark blue is perfect as is the added silver thread and stickles. Peace in silver is excellent. Lovely, lovely.
