Refuge and Strength
This card was designed using the Creative Worship Clear Stamp Sets, Master of the Sea (designed by Krista Hamrick) and Peaceful Peonies (designed by NinaB Designs) from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. I love the images in both of these sets- perfect for cards, Bible Art Journaling, home décor as well as scrapbooking and other crafts.
I incorporated the Sunday Stamps #SSC160 "Sketch Fun" , the Global Design Project #103 “For Him” and the Word Art Wednesday #298-#299 “Anything Goes” Challenge into the design.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the anchor image from Master of the Sea with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image using ink from markers, adding shadows directly with the marker and fussy-cut around the edges.
2). Ink the sentiment from Peaceful Peonies with archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Create the fishtail banner by hand (or you can use the corner of a square or hexagon punch), layer onto a piece slate cardstock and again onto a piece of ocean blue cardstock.
3). Layer the patterned paper for the background onto slate and ocean blue cardstock. Create the circle element and rectangle panel (per the sketch) from cardstock and patterned paper using stitched die cuts. Mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.
4). Add the knotted rope trim (I used hot glue to hold it in place) along with the anchor and sentiment using dimensional foam.
5). Finish off the card with grey mist jewel drops.
