D'vine Swirls and Waves


Today is the start of the next challenge at Word Art Wednesday, and our sponsor is the fabulous

  Newton's Nook, who are providing a $20 voucher for the winner.

The inspiration for my card came from the words of the scripture, and I created a background reminiscent of  'waters covering the sea'

I used the D'vine swirls EF to create a monoprint using Brilliance Platinum Planet ink

The scripture, available as a freebie over at Word Art Wednesday, was printed and cut using a stitched rectangle, and sponged with Tumbled Glass DI

The finish was to layer blue organza and silver ribbons across the lower part pf the card, and topped with a bow.

The inside was decorated with a piece of washi tape

Lovely card Maxine. I like how you inked the sentiment to soften it. The embossing definitely evokes the thought of waves to me.

Becca Sadler said...

Maxine: Great Scripture verse for the sentiment and the swirls are fitting as a background for it! The ribbons give an elegant touch! Very pretty card!

What a lovely and apt embossed background you have created. I love how the blue has settled inbetween the raised parts . Such a gorgeous blue and how well it all works with the scripture.
God Bless, Neet xx
