Hello everyone! I hope you have had a wonderful Sunday!
Today I got out the newly released set from Our Daily Bread designs called Jesus. There are several quotes from Our Lord in this set, and this image of Jesus. I have to admit to you that I had trouble doing any artwork involving an image of our Lord, but this one is so tastefully done and I wanted to try superimposing a cross so this is what I came up with. The image itself is stamped with Sahara Sand on Sahara Sand Card Stock, then I used the cross image from SU! Refuge and Strength. I stamped that in VersaMark, then rubbed Matalllic Rub On in Colonial over it. For the frame I used a very detailed embossing template, embossed it on basic black cs, then sponged on the same metallic rub on. I also added just a touch of green metallic to the frame to pop it a little more. I wanted a more aged effect so I rubbed off most of the metallic, then sponged all around my frame, starting off the page and working inward. I stamped the verse, which is from Matt 28:20 (I had to cut the reference off to fit it in my Nestablity Tag Trio element) in Archival Jet Black onto Vellum, then I rubbed the same Metallic around the edges of the vellum. I felt it needed more to stand out against the frame so I hand cut a matting for it from Sahara Sand, and again rubbed the edges with the Metallic. I matted my embossed frame on Sahara Sand, then onto Basic Black. This card is 5 x 7. The ribbon is a yummy double sided satin that's gold on one side and this champagne color on the other. This side was a perfect match for the Metallic I used, as I would call that a cross between gold and silver. I made some slight score lines in the corners to give a mitered look to the black frame. That's about it. I had my Christian music playing in the background as I made this and I have to tell you I just enjoyed talking to the Lord the whole time I was working on this!
