He Watches Me Side Step Card


Hello everyone!
I made this card for today's Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS as well as for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge23 (use a touch of green).  We were given the instructions to make this side step card and it was super fun.  This is a Sneak Peek at one of Four Fantastic New sets to be released on Feb. 1 by Our Daily Bread designs.  It's called He Watches Me.  I love ALL these new sets which all have bird or nest images and the best Scriptures and sentiments ever!!! You are going to want these sets!

I used Kaiser DP, Perfect Plum and Bazzil for my papers.  I colored the image with Prisma Pencils, and used my bird book to find a Sparrow that had these bluish gray tones I love so much... this one is colored like a Black Throated Sparrow.  I took the sentiment which is from that wonderful old Hymn, His Eye is on the Sparrow... and I broke it into two linese so I could place half on each step.  For the back step I used a Spellbinders Leaf Frame and cut it to fit, and cut out part of the floral design from the Kaiser dp.  I used SB Fancy tags and Label 6 as well.

My Granddaughter is with me for a few days and I really was rushing to try to get this done and she helped me with it and made one of her own.  So it was a fun, albeit slow project! LOL!  We're having a fun day!

Thanks for stopping by and please have a blessed day!

Hi Grace! I am so glad I came here today. I was kind of stuck on a drawing. But then the songs of worship started playing on your blog. I kept it on and kept drawing, and you know what? I suddenly felt a flow come into my drawing, and I was inspired! It was so good to tell the Lord how much I love Him and sing to the songs you have on here. I am so thankful I came here today! He lifted me up through this good work you did, leaving that music on for visitors to hear. Bless you!!
And, your card is stunning!~ What a lot of work went into that. It is so beautiful! xo
