Olive Branches Challenge Card

Hello, and welcome.  I have been wanting to use this stamp from Power Poppy, but it is fall oriented, so I have not used it, until now.  I decided that if I didn't stamp the entire stamp, and just highlighted the olives part, it could do for a spring stamp also.  I left out the oak leaves and acorns, using only a portion of the stamp.
I used stamps from the Olive & Oak Expanded clear stamp set from Power Poppy.

I stamped with Tim Holtz distress ink in antique linen, so that I could do no-line coloring.  For my coloring medium, I chose Polychromos pencils. I inked the verse with Ranger archival leaf green ink, and brushed the background with TH distress ink scattered straw with a Clarity brush.

Fabric I used for my inspiration

I am adding my card to the Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge .  The challenge is to use fabric as inspiration.  Here is the fabric I chose for inspiration for my card....
Thanks for stopping by today.  I appreciate you taking time to visit, and I am grateful for your comments.



  1. Lynda... GASP!!! This is AMAZING! I absolutely love the soft color and how you only used a portion of the stamp. Such beautiful results! LOVE!

  2. Oh, Lynda! I agree with Julie - GASP! This is gorgeous, and your coloring is exquisite (as I know you do)! And what a beautiful way to use this digi, and I so love this Scripture verse. Sweet friend, you continue to inspire me. And I am so blessed we met at SCS! Just wish you lived closer to me!! Hehe! Blessed Easter, sweet friend! Hugs and love! xoxo
