Peaceful Swans Sympathy

I love these swans by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - in my rather large stamp collection, I didn't have a swan until I saw this set.




The other sentiments in the set are just lovely - "Peace be with you", "Be still and know that I am God" and "May the peace of God fill your heart today".

I used a metal impression plate on the white background - I have so many Cuttlebug/Stampin' Up/Sizzix embossing folders that I had really ignored the more subtle texture plates that a number of companies are starting to make.  But I have come to the realization that many times, subtle is good.  This plate comes from Papertrey Ink.
I used this week's Sweet Stop sketch.


This is my second post today using stamps from my recently received Sweet 'n Sassy stamps.  I have one more set to open up - probably later today.  I am going to try so very hard to use new stamps before they get put away as I already have many, many others that have never touched ink!

  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Peaceful Swans
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Basic Gray, light blue copics to coordinate with Baja Breeze
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Basic Gray, Baja Breeze dsp
