"Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them." ~ John 7:38Hi Faith sisters! This month’s Crafter’s of Faith challenge theme is inspired this verse and your theme is: Water!
It’s summer and many of us are enjoying the splendors of the outdoors – boating, swimming, walking along the lakes and rivers. Summer rains, as heavy and burdening as they can sometimes be, bring us new growth all around ~ trees, green grass and gorgeous flowers blooming. Even spiritually, many people accept Jesus into their hearts and become baptized in water and have beach baptisms. Water is a beautiful, healing, essential! This month, I want you to use WATER as your theme on your cards: Be as creative as you like - think boats, oceans, the beach, tilted watering cans, bird baths, falling rain, etc! Let water be the focus of your card and extra brownie points for using the color BLUE!! Blessings!As many of you know, I am a fan of stamps with the art work by D. Morgan and am lucky enough to have quite a collection. Lots of them involve lighthouses and ocean scenes, so I knew right away that I would use a D. Morgan stamp for this challenge. In the end, what may be my favorite won out:
It's stamped with Marvy Matchables ink in Dark Brown onto Wausau's Stardust CS. The Stardust has little flecks of color in it and a slightly rustic texture, both of which I really like for scenic/nature cards. The card is colored with Prisma and Derwent pencils, blended with Gamsol.
Here are two closer views of the sentiment:
The inside includes another blank panel of the Stardust card stock, and a panel of vellum that contains pieces of pressed grasses. The sentiment is an old SU, stamped in Old Olive ink.
The only part of this great challenge that I forgot about was including blue! It would have been easy to change the color scheme to blues, but I just didn't remember that part in time. Sorry Kelly!!
Songs that accompanied me while making this card included Heart's "Dreamboat Annie" and a good many Jimmy Buffet tunes, sprinkled in with some Bobby Darin. All in all, a happy escape from the daily grind.
Wishing you all a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!
