God Is Our Refuge and Strength
I hope all of you in the USA had a great Labor Day weekend! I had a chance to create a few cards using a new to me stamp set, Sunflower from Unity along with a verse sentiment from the Stamp Simply set, Fear Not.
I decided to incorporate the Sweet Sketch Wed 2 #166 Sketch Challenge along with the Simon Says Monday “Something Clear” Challenge (I used clear embossing powder) and the WordArt Wednesday #402-#403 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the above challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- fabulous galleries and inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Once the background has dried, stamp the sentiment with Versafine™ Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Stamp the sunflower image with Versafine™ Black Onyx ink onto a piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the image has cooled, watercolor with water-based markers and add distress oxide ink to the background before die-cutting the image with a stitched oval die. Add white highlights to the center of the flower with a white paint pen and use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the sunflower petals.
Emboss the sentiment in the same manner as above and add a bit of distress oxide ink to soften the background before die-cutting with a stitched circle die.
Mount the dry embossed, layered panels per the sketch layout and add the black satin ribbon before adhering the entire panel to the white card base.
Mount the sunflower oval image along with the sentiment using dimensional foam and adhere the black satin bow. Add a few pearls to the sentiment to finish off the card.
