Hello my friends! I have another new release to share with you. This card is made using Our Daily Bread designs Hymn Collage, and Not Forgotten. I played in this week's color challenge on SCS, which was to use Real Red, So Saffron and Pool Party, and any neutrals. I came as close as I could. I stamped my image with Memento ink and colored with Copics, coloring the flowers twice so I could pop them up and give some extra dimension to them. I also added Black Diamond Stickles to the centers for some sparkle and texture. I sponged the entire card which started out cream, with THoltz Distress ink in Scattered Straw. I distressed my edges with scissors, and inked some more. I then used my craft blade to open a slit along the lower banner where I could insert my two sentiments from the Not Forgotten set, and I cut one tag with the ODBD Custom Recipe and Tags Die.
I can remember singing this hymn a lot as a kid. I miss singing some of the old hymns! I think this new stamp could have many great uses, whether for a service man or woman, or as way of encouragement to someone who IS fighting the good fight, and may be suffering for it....and it's a great reminder that as Christians we need to clad ourselves in the full armor of God and be on our guard, for our enemy prowls about seeking who he may devour. If we are not alert, we can easily be sucked in to the temptations of this world... but God has given us all we need to stand firm! He has already won the victory... so we need to claim what's ours in Him! I hope that encourages you today!
