Refuge in Him
This card was designed using the Creative Worship Clear Stamp Sets, Faith Quote Blocks (NinaB Designs) and His Wings (Korin Sutherland) 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 used the layout from the Freshly Made Sketches #303 Sketch Challenge for the design along with the Curtain Call 09/01 “Dreamcatcher” Inspiration Challenge for the colors and theme. I am also linking to the Word Art Wednesday #298-#299 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
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- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). For the background- tap Tim Holtz® Worn Lipstick and Hickory Smoke Distress Ink onto a silicone mat, lightly spritz with water, press a piece of vanilla cardstock into the ink, lift up and dry the ink with a heat tool.
2). Once the panel has thoroughly dried, ink the Faith Quote Blocks images with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp onto the panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Trim the panel and mount onto gray cardstock, trim again and mount onto a white card base.
3). Ink the feather images and the bird image from His Wings with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp onto vanilla cardstock, heat emboss with clear embossing powder and once the embossing has cooled, fussy-cut the feathers. For the lighter colored feather, apply Worn Lipstick and Vintage Photo Distress Ink onto vanilla cardstock, ink the solid feather from His Wings with Versamark™ ink, heat emboss with clear embossing powder and once cooled, fussy cut the image.
4). Emboss a piece of woodgrain designer paper with a woodgrain folder, apply diluted white acrylic paint over the embossing with a paint brush, trim and mount onto black cardstock.
5). Add strips of polished hemp twine, layer the fussy-cut feathers, add the twine bow and antique brad. Mount the woodgrain panel onto the card front and mount the bird with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
