|Serenity Now - MFTWSC#11 Submission (detail)|
Supplies used on this card: stamps: My Favorite Things (Serenity Now); Copic Markers; Spica Glitter Markers; paper: Prima Marketing Inc. (The Breathe Paper Collection); gemstones: Target Stores (dollar section).
I decided to ink up a stamp set, which I have never used before (even though I have had it for sometime among my collection). I chuckle each time I read the sentiment, "Serenity Now!" C'mon... Seinfeld fans - you KNOW that one for sure! Over 12 years later & I still laugh my you-know-what off anytime I hear "Serenity Now!" And let's face it... there have been plenty of times when I've uttered the saying myself.
The color combination was something I picked before I'd even selected the images. They hold true to the colors I see often in Buddhism, specifically in the attire of the Dalai Lama. Rich golds, deep reds, and often purples are a theme throughout royalty over the ages, or even within religions.
I hope this card brings some serenity to my life right now... the days have been crazy, hectic. The making of this card was actually a very calming process, & something I really needed to finish off a busy week. Wishing you all a piece of serenity in your own day, life, etc.! Namasté!
...Happy Cr8'ing too!
