He Restores My Soul


Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Today I'm giving you another sneak peek at a new set to be released by Our Daily Bread Designs on June First! Isn't it beautiful? I just love deer... I love watching them... they are all over our subdivision, and except when one ran into my husband's front fender, I just totally enjoy them!

This new set has some fabulous Scripture verses but because today I wanted to play with the Sketch Challenge on SCS I decided to cut apart part of one of the verses from Ps. 23. The colors for this card were inspired by the pretty floral pattern of this Memory Box Poppyfinch designer paper, which I also LOVE!

My card base is Mellow Moss, the matting for the dp is Lovely Lilac, and there is Mellow Moss sponging around the edges of about everything... just a light touch of sponging. The image itself is stamped in Archival Jet Black on Aquarello 140 lb Watercolor Paper and watercolored wet on wet with SU! Inks and Markers. I then stamped and colored another panel of just the deer side of the picture, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals to meet the sketch. I kept the colors light to go with the colors of the dp.

The piercing is a template by Ornare, also from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Have you ever been just so weary from the cares of this world? Are there times you feel like you have no more to give and you are totally empty? That is the time to run to Jesus and be refreshed by His living water... feast on His Word, rest in His presence and He will restore your soul.

I hope you have a blessed day! Thank you for stopping by!

This is lovely! So enjoying your sneak peeks, but I always like my visits to your blog. And the song you were playing today "Give Me Jesus" it has been too long since I've heard that song . . . brings back such pleasant memories.
