Sketch 2 - Dove of Peace

This is another simple sketch and more of a ''Duh" design.  It is probably been used by every cardmaker on the face of the Earth.
Don't you just love the focal point of the sketch?

I drew this out because of the Dove of Peace stamp.  It is an elegant stamp from Stampin' Up.  The design on the dove reminds me of a stained glass window in a church.

The stamp only comes with the wood block.   I knew I wasn't going to mount it onto the wood block and I had to figure out what to do since the foam on the stamp was super sticky. First, I cut the sentiment off.   I found a spare piece of vinyl, just like the kind that goes on the MISTI to protect the grid.   I just adhered the stamp to the vinyl and trimmed any overhang.  Now the stamp can cling to the lid of the MISTI.
Did I tell you how much I loved how this turned out?  It gives my heart flutters.  I know it is supposed to be  the Dove of Peace, but it just makes me feel hopeful.  It is a reminder of how much God loves us.  I really don't think that the Dove of Peace stamp should be limited to Christmas, but it should be used to share hope and love to someone who need it.  Yes, cheesy but true.
