Hello everyone! Happy Monday!
I played with the technique lovers challenge today... faux suede. Unfortunately my photo isn't the best to show the suede panels... but the light tan (Creamy Caramel) are the faux suede..
I also wanted to play along with the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge this week, which was based on Ps.97:1 " The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice; let the oceans be glad".
We were to make a card showing the earth, seas, trees, mountains... rejoicing. I thought of this beautiful scene that shows so much of the beauty of nature that God created rejoicing!
The image is from this month's new releases at Our Daily Bread designs... With Deepest Sympathy. I did not make this into a sympathy card however... I just made it masculine and plan on putting a sentiment inside on this one, though there is room for a sentiment on the outside as well.
This image makes me think of the 23rd Psalm... "The Lord is my shephard, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul..."
I stamped the image with Archival Jet Black on Water Color paper and watercolored with SU! Markers, using a wet on wet technique.
The base is Bazzill basics, the textured blue is ProvoCraft and the faux suede is creamy caramel.
I did sew the blue panel to the base this time and so sorry I did because my sewing machine got all messed up and I ended up doing closer to a satin stitch than a zig zag to cover up the mess. Oh well..... that's why I rarely sew on my cards, because my machine hasn't worked right since I rehopolstered my sun room furniture! Have to get it fixed!!!
I did faux stitching on the faux suede so I wouldn't mess that up. I pierced the faux suede corners, added some twine and used the Martha Stewart Leaf Edge Punch for the panel outside and inside.
That's about it for today!
I hope you are enjoying this Monday! It's raining here and I'm enjoying it! Great stamping weather!!! Have a blessed day!
