Welcome once again - I am back this time with a card inspired by the
Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge this week.
The challenge is based on this scripture,
Lam 3:22 –23 “The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.”
And I would encourage you to go over to their site and read through the devotion there. The challenge itself is to:
Dig deep into your craft cupboard and use something from your stash that you 'just had to have' cause you would use it everyday....but have forgotten about...
I thought about this for a day or so, and went right back to my beginning days when I did not know about bling or die cuts etc, and I had bought several balls of plastic raffia, and a huge sheet of finely corrugated card from the local stationers... and have hardly used them!! These were my starting points.
I then saw a piece of card on my desk that was a 'trial' in colour blocking using watercolour crayons and spritzing , after it was dry I sprayed it with a silver glimmer mist. I was not happy with it for the card I planned then, but it 'fitted' this card.
Here you can see some of the sheen it has.
I chose this quote from the Layers of Color Encouragement set and stamped it in bottle ink on the lemon card stock. After cutting it with a Labels 14 Nestabilites die I sponged it with Memento Dandelion ink. I also used that ink to sponge the edge of the coloured card.
The raffia was wound around the green corrugated card and secured with a bow, and adorned with a green rhinestone.
The sentiment was stamped and embossed - I love this sentiment as it is elegant but does not 'hog the limelight' on a card like this.
The final details were the rhinestones and the butterflies, flowers and leaves which were part of some paper lace (another acquisition that I just 'had' to have....) that I cut up and adhered randomly around the card.
