Peaceful Wish for the New Year
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  For the last day of 2018, I wanted to make a card that would be a prayer for the new year. I am hoping for much more peace and kindness in the world for 2019.  I feel like we need it.

To make the background, I took some Colorburst Powders, sprinkled them onto a non-stick craft sheet, spritzed the whole thing with water and then dragged some 140lb watercolor paper through the mixture to get a splattered watercolor paint background.  I used the Silver Colorburst Liquid Metal in with the colors so get a bit of a metallic shine.  Here is a close up so that you can see the metallic better:


I cut out the word piece from the same watercolor paper so that it would match.

When I cut out the winged dove from white cardstock, I thought it was a bit to stark in color.  To add a bit of emphasis to the wings, I lightly colored the outside edges with a blue watercolor pencil and the tiniest smidge of brown watercolor pencil.  I then softened all of the pencil with a Dove Blender Pen.

To finish the card, I popped up the dove with foam tape and added a layer of silver metallic cardstock to pick up the silver in the watercolor background.

Happy New Year everyone.  I wish you all much health, happiness and peace in the new year.






Your work Laurie is outstanding! The colors, the dove, peace beg one to help
Give the world peace. Well done! May we all find peace in our soulTHANK YOU!

Beautiful thoughts for the new year, beautiful background and beautiful card. It's on my try it next list.

Beautiful wish for the new year, Laura! may 2019 be peace-filled and joy-filled for you
