Keep CALM at CASology

This week we're tapping into our inner Zen.
I was amazed by the interpretations by the DT of this cue card
and can't wait to see what you create!

I wanted to use a floating lotus blossom. The water is so peaceful to me. I had the perfect stamp set from STAMPlorations (Lotus Love). I stamped the lotus flower first, then masked it off so that I could stamp the lily pad. I colored everything in using Zig Clean Color brush pens and did some watercoloring. The sentiments that I used on this card were from Simon Says Stamp (One With Nature). The last little step I did was to sponge on some Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink around the bottom.

Time to float over to the DT blogs and see what they created
