Jeremiah 20:11- The Lord Is With Me

Hi Again Friends!!

I am sharing another card that I designed this weekend for a few online challenges using Our Daily Bread Design (ODBD) stamps.

This Clean and Simple (CAS) card uses one layer card for the base with the focal images mounted on dimensional foam and incorporates LeAnne's Color Challenge #299 at The Paper PlayersCAS Colours and Sketches #177 Sketch Challenge, and the Alphabet Challenge “H” for Hand Coloured Image.

This was a quick and easy card!  If you have not already done so, I hope you have a chance to check out the above challenge sites- fabulous ideas from all!

To create this card:

Score and fold a piece of Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock in half (I used a 4 ¼” x 11” piece for a finished 4 ¼” x 5 ½” A2 card size).

Ink the Old Flag Background (ODBD) using Stampin’ Write Markers- Dapper Denim for the star area, Cherry Cobbler for the red stripes and Smoky Slate for the white stripes, stamp off onto scrap paper and lay the card front down on top of the background stamp, pressing with your fingers to transfer the ink.

Ink the Not Forgotten military figure image with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Scribble a bit of Dapper Denim and Cherry Cobbler ink from the Stampin’ Write markers onto your craft mat (or you can use an acrylic block) and color the image with the ink and an AquaPainter™.

Color the military uniform with a Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker and add shadows with the Tip Top Taupe Stampin’ Write Marker.

Trim the image and mount onto Dapper Denim cardstock.

Ink the sentiment using the Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim Stampin’ Write Markers and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Trim the sentiment, mount onto Dapper Denim cardstock, “huff” onto the Old Flag Background to re-moisten the ink in the star area of the stamp and press the sentiment over the background stamp for a light star background.

Mount the focal image and sentiment with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Not Forgotten, Old Flag Background (both Our Daily Bread Designs)

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- Dapper Denim, Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Sahara Sand, Tip Top Taupe

Paper: Extra Thick and Regular Whisper White, Dapper Denim

Accessories: AquaPainter™

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- hugs and I hope you have a marvelous week!

This is wonderful, Julie! That flag background is amazing...I've not seen it before, but I think it might have to go on my wish list! Your soldier image along with the Bible verse is a perfect match! A very thought-provoking, thoughtful card! Thanks for playing with my colors this week at the Paper Players!
