Heartfelt Creations: Sweet Serenity Debut!

Hello! Today I have some cards using the new stamps and paper from Heartfelt Creations Sweet Serenity collection.  I love the little blue bird.  My bluebirds are out in full force right now, fighting with the sparrows over the rights to my bird houses! I colored my image using Gelatos and a Fantastix blending tool dipped in water.
For the card above, I wanted to make the covered bridge image look like an old pencil sketch that my mom had framed at the house I grew up in.  I loved how old it looked and that paper was stained and discolored around the edges. 

For more inspiration from the design team, and for complete instructions on recreating both of these cards, please visit the Heartfelt Creations blog.  Leave a comment on the HC blog for a chance to win the entire new collection of stamps, paper and die!

Thanks for stopping by,
