Timeless Tues. Meets Stamping in Time



Hello everyone!  Happy Weekend!
I made this card for two challenges.... Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, and Betty's brand new Challenge over on the Our Daily Bread designs Blog,  Stamping in Time!  Betty will be bringing us an assignment challenge on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month!   Feel free to grab her blog button here and post it in your side bar to spread the news of her new challenge!  Be sure to link it to the Our Daily Bread designs Blog!                                                                                                                                                                                                      So this week Betty challenged us to pull our our older sets... specifically the 2009 Anniversary set... The Design Team Scripture Collection 1 and 2.  We were to make a card using one of these two sets, and the challenge was to use word spotlighting.

I chose this verse from Is. 12:2 for my Scripture from the ODBD  DT Scripture Collection 1 set, stamped it with Always Artichoke on creamy cs, over stamped lightly with Amazing Grace Hymn with VersaMark and rubbed Pebbles pearly chalks over it.  After cutting with a Spellbinders Circle Die, I sponged with Always Artichoke.  Then I stamped the verse again with VersaMark, embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and cut out my two lines, popped them up on dimensionals for my spotlight.

My base is Always Artichoke, Designer Paper is Memory Box Sugardrop, Die Cut leaves and bird is Sizzix, and flowers and bird are airbrushed with Copics. (It's my first shot at the Air Brush, so bear with me while I figure it out! LOL)  I used a Sizzix Embossing Folder for my pink panel, then sponged with AA.

Thanks for looking and for taking the time to leave a comment.  It means so much to me!  To play along with Betty's Assignment Challenge, simply check it out here and link your card by Jan. 27, 6PM EST... there's a prize up for grabs, so why not join in the fun!
