I made this card for several challenges over on Christian Paper Crafts.
All this week they are offering great prizes so check it out!
Monday's Color challenge was to use Elegant Eggplant, Taken with Teal and Old Olive. Tues. was a sketch challenge, and wow did I have to get creative with that! LOL! Bible Verse Thurs. was to make a card with a sympathy or comforting verse.
So here's what I did:
I stamped the flowers from SU! Bloomin Beautiful six times on Watercolor paper, watercolored with inks, using a wet on wet technique. I used Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive. I then highlighted each bloom with a purple glittery gel pen (unknown). I cut out all six blooms.
The verse is from Our Daily Bread Designs, Scripture Collection2. It quotes Ps. 138:3. I stamped the verse on watercolor paper too with Elegant Egplant. I then lightly sponged with Teal and Old Olive. I cut this out with my Nestabilities Label 5.
I cut a white lattice strip with my Nestabilities Lattice Edgeability. I sprayed this with Pearl Glimmer Mist. I also sprayed the flowers with Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist, and the leaves with Honey Dew GM. While they were drying, I cut my BasicGrey (Euphoria) designer paper to fit the center panel of this Martha Stewart card I had found at Big Lots this week. It came with big butterflies that have a sticky coating on which you can apply glitter. I glittered a frame around my center panel with Stampendous Jewel Glitter in Ocean Spray. I mounted the sentiment panel and some of the flowers on dimensionals and angled the flowers to match the strips of paper used in the sketch. I added bling from BasicGrey and a couple of leaves I had cut off when adhering my flowers.
I can't capture the sparkle at all... it's dark and this is an inside shot. It's quite sparkly and I hope it will be an encouragement to someone. I have lost three friends this week so there is much need for sympathy and encouragement cards!
Thanks for looking and have a blessed weekend!
