SC626 Faith In His Timing
I hope all of you are having a wonderful New Year’s week so far! It’s time for the first Splitcoaststampers’ sketch of 2017 and I love the versatility of Cathy's SC626 sketch !
I decided to create a fairly simple mixed media card using the brand new ODBD January 2017 release Bible Journaling Stamp, His Timing along with a few of the previously released ODBD PiercedCircles Dies and Pierced Rectangles Dies.
The sentiment "Faith in God includes Faith in His Timing" can apply to so many verses that rely on waiting for God to answer prayer and also the wonderful Scripture in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8.
I absolutely love the artwork on the ODBD His Timing image and that in addition to Bible Art Journaling, this stamp could be used for home decor as well as cards, scrapbooking and more!
I am also going to link this card to an older Splitcoaststampers’ Free For All F4A342 “It’s AboutTime” Challenge (I love that the SCS challenges do not have “end” dates)- I have been trying to go back and "catch up" on a few that I missed last year :-).
If you have not had a chance to visit us at the SCS Challenge sites or the ODBDBlog yet, I hope you will find time to do so- fabulous inspiration from my DT Sisters at the SCS Sketch Gallery, the SCS Free For All Gallery as well as my DT Sister “Breadsticks” at ODBD!
To create this card:
1). Ink the ODBD His Timing Bible Journaling stamp image with archival black ink and stamp onto white cardstock. Heat set with a heat tool.
2). Color the image distress inks- I used antique linen, vintage photo and tea dye, blending the colors with a water brush. Continue adding color until you are satisfied with the results, lightly set with a heat tool.
3). Using your finger, apply microglaze over the entire image (or you could stamp the image again and create a mask). I used a microglaze to protect the image from the background stamping, rubbing into the paper ....one thing I did find that cat fur tends to stick- lol!
4). Ink the ODBD His Timing image with tea dye distress ink and stamp over the background to fill in the paper, trim the panel.
5). Die cut and emboss a piece of espresso cardstock using the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies, mount the stamped panel to the die cut.
6). On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp three of the ODBD His Timing images with archival black ink (I only stamped the top part of the image for the clock).
7). To create the little clock images-a). Die cut and emboss the clocks using the ODBD Pierced Circle Dies and use distress inks with the water brush to color the individual clocks. b).Die cut and emboss three circles from ODBD Ephemera Essentials Collection 6x6 Paper with the ODBD Circles Dies. c). Die cut and emboss three circles with the ODBD Pierced Circle Dies from espresso cardstock, layer the circle die cuts together with the stamped clock images.
8). Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the largest die in the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies, mount onto a piece of espresso cardstock.
9). Add a 3/8” piece of light suede taffeta ribbon, wrapping the ends behind the panel and mount each of the clock images per the sketch with dimensional foam.
10). Adhere the entire panel onto a white card front and add a few pearls to the center of the clock images to finish off the card.
I had fun designing this card and think that the ODBD His Timing image can be for masculine or feminine cards- what do you think? If you have a chance to create a card this week, we hope you will join us with our Splitcoaststampers' SC626 Sketch Challenge!
Thanks again for taking the time to visit- hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!
