Let the Children Come to Me....

 

  

Hello everyone!  Where has this week gone to?  I wanted to play in this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge and so I had to put a move on this afternoon!  I made this easel card for this week's challenge, which was based on Matt. 18:4 " Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."  The challenge was to use an image of a child or a sentiment about children, not a baby card.  Well, Our Daily Bread designs has the perfect set for this challenge... it's called Children of God.  It has several Scrpitures and sentiments that would be perfect.  I chose this one from Matt. 18:6.  I stamped the sentiment with Our Daily Bread designs Steel Blue Ink and cut with a Spellbinder's Label 4 die cut.  While in the die I spritzed it with the airbrush, using Copic # B21.  The image is a Penny Black large stamp that I stamped with Archival on Watercolor paper and watercolored with markers.  I then masked the image and spritzed the bg with B21, B24, and N2.   For the grass I used G20 and G24.  I then dotted tiny dots with my SU! Markers, Old Olive and Pretty in Pink.

The papers are:  Base - Bazzill, Pink - Martha Stewart, DP - BasicGrey Sugar Rush.
Accessories: May Arts Ribbon, Fiskars corner hearts punches, Sewing Machine, ZVA Creative Pearl Flourishes, Stickles for flower centers.  I used the Bow Easy to make this bow... so fun!  

Thanks for looking!  This is my second post for the day so two big thank yous if you looked at both... but I was running out of time for the SSC!  Why not play along?  A new challenge is issued every Sunday!  I am also entering this in Practical Scrappers Challenge to use die cuts.  I used the SB label 4.  I am also entering it in Vicki's Saturday Spotlight Challenge, think little, tiny!  My verse says... let the Little children come....I hope that qualifies! :)

Grace - I think you're thinking spring! I just love these colors, especially since they're 'taking' me away from the 28" of snow outside my window!

Your airbrushing looks fabulous! I tried out the technique at a Copic class I took awhile back...if we used it as you did, I would have been more intrigued! beautiful card :)
