A Stencil, String and Shimmer


I thought life was going to slow down a bit - well, thought thought wrong!!  Maybe next week.
Once again it is time for a new Word Art Wednesday challenge, and our sponsor for this challenge is Sunny Studio Stamps, with a generous $25 voucher to their store.

This weeks card came together very quickly

I started with this monoprint from an ARTploration Confetti Circles stencil that I had used brown ink on, and then moistened it with a spray of red Perfect Pearls 

The verse was beautifully crafted by the talented Karen M, and is available free on the Word Art Wednesday blog.  I cut it out with a stitched rectangle die, and lightly brushed  the edges with some Memento Lady Bug ink before removing the die

I tied some twine around the focal panel before mounting it on some deep red/brown card

The inside was finished with a strip of the card I used for the front.

I am sure I commented on this blog post. I love the background, it needed nothing more than the beautiful scripture on it but you have gone the extra mile. You always make sure everything is finished off beautifully. I love the string and the strip inside - so you.
Blessings and a Blessed Christmas
