Fs88 Tranquility


Today's Featured Stamper on Splitcoast is Anne Ryan.  Anne has a wonderful style and I couldn't wait to case her.

I chose to use her Take Time card.  The changes I made include:  5 1/2" square card instead of an A2 one.  Colors,

Stamps, added a stamped key to the ribbon and heated the ribbon.  Embossed a key hole in place of the clock face.

I also made the main image panel smaller to include a sentiment underneath it.  (close your eyes, escape into tranquility)


The images used are all from Innovative Stamp Creations  The Butterfly Lady is from the Summer Elements II sheet &

the sentiment, key, keyhole and brocade stamp on the background are from a new sheet to be released tomorrow -

10-13-08 called Mini Book Series: Photo Book Negative.
