Isaiah 41:10- Fear Not, For I Am With You
I am on a Clean and Simple (CAS) trend this weekend and wanted to share a card that was created using the Pals Paper Arts PPA283 Color Challenge- the colors that Brian chose for the challenge remind me of spring and with all of the cold weather that has arrived here on the East Coast, I thought a few flowers were in order :-)
I just love this passage of Scripture:
"Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. "
Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
I think that this verse is appropriate for so many occasions...Illness, Sympathy, Encouragement and even for a "Just Because" card and am so thankful that it was included in the Rose Wonder stamp set :-)
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the Pals Paper Arts site to check out their spectacular Design Team samples as well as their fabulous challenge galleries- I am always inspired by this group of designers!
Ink the Watercolor Wash background stamp with Mint Macaron Classic Ink and use a Sponge Dauber to pounce over the stamp and remove some of the ink.
With the inked background stamp facing upward, lay a piece of Whisper White cardstock over the stamp and press with your fingers to transfer the inked image to the cardstock.
Ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink as well as two of the leaf stems and stamp directly onto the background panel.
Ink the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and stamp onto the panel.
Ink the smaller blossom image from Rose Wonder with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp three of the flowers onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Use an AquaPainter™ with Melon Mambo Classic Ink to color the flowers and once dried, color the center petals and shadows onto the outer petals with the Stampin’ Write Melon Mambo Marker (using the AquaPainter™ to soften the edges of the marker on the outer petals).
Color the center of the flowers with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, fussy cut each flower and set aside.
Use the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to color the leaves and add shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.
Trim the background panel and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Add two of the flowers directly onto the card front and the third (center) flower, mount onto the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional®.
Add the Pearls to centers of each flower to finish off the card.
