Stampin'Up! Peace Within ~ Calendars

I am enjoying Stampin'Up!s Peace Within stamp set with all the coloring opportunities it offers. Today's projects were inspired by my trip to Cracker Barrel with my 8 year old last week. She loves to eat and shop at Cracker Barrel. While we were there, I noticed these cute pull off calendars with magnets on the back. They were decorated with antique images.

Have you ever seen the movie, Field of Dreams? You know that whisper Kevin Costner hears, "If you build it, they will come". Well I had the same experience! A voice inside whispered, "You can make these yourself with Stampin'Up!".

Peace Within seemed to be the perfect stamp choice. Each image was stamped on Watercolor paper with Stazon Black ink. The coloring was done with Blender Pens and re-inkers using colors from the Earth Element family. The spotlight was created by sponging over a 1 3/4" punched circle.

Here is template I found on splitcoast for the calendar pages ~ Template click here.

TOMORROW is the last Wrapping 101 project!! WooHoo! Hope you will stop by tomorrow for the finale!
