Peace on Earth
This may be my very favorite of the Penny Black Christmas stamps this year. I have a lot of fun using different styles of Christmas stamps, but the cards I send out will feature the real reason for Christmas! I appreciate stamp companies that offer us this choice.
I've used Penny Blacks slaptstick/cling set Peace on Earth, which includes the image and the sentiment. I stamped the image in black Memento ink, colored with Copics and used a nestie circle die to cut it out. I almost always stamp and emboss images I will be coloring with Copics. Helps the ink stay within the border of the image!
I pop dotted the star for a little more interest. This is a card you could do assembly line style and make a quantity in very little time.
I know it's early for Christmas cards, but I wanted to share my excitement for this lovely image.
This post is due to publish on Monday the 21st and we are on our journey home; due to arrive in Huntsville at 9:30 am. Tired but happy and grateful we chose to fly instead of driving more than 2500 miles!!
