Hello Delightful friends and family!
I'm sharing another tag! Love this color combination of the greens and blues. I've used Distress Stains (Ranger) again to create the background. I also used them (stains) to add a bit of color to the flower and the beaks and feathers of these funny long legged birdies! I've used a Q-Tip to apply the stains to the images and I wasn't overly careful, I wanted to keep with a watercolor look.
First day of Spring 2012, can you see the dew about to drip from the blossom? This tree is right out my back door.
Same tree two weeks later, look close and you'll see a honey bee feeding off the blossom. The tree just hums as we walk by. Today that same tree is full of green leaves and only a few blossoms are on the tree, most of them have taken flight or have covered the grass beneath the tree! I just love how the Lord's handiwork is so magnificently shown and declared in nature. What an awe-inspiring Creator we have!
Abby shared a lot about the changing seasons on her blog Little Birdie Blessings (Scripture Thursday challenge). We all go through seasons of life, some good and some not so good but we can be sure that our Lord Jesus will be by our side and has promised to never leave us nor forsake us. I think that is why the verse I used on the tag is so important to memorize "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding" if you keep reading in Proverbs 3, it continues on to say "in all your way acknowledge Him and He will direct your path." So no matter what season you are in the Lord is there to keep you on the right path, IF you will trust and obey Him. He is always faithful.
My tag today is entered into two challenges:
Ingredients - Stamps: Ranger Dylusions (birds); Unity Ippity line (Devoted set), Taylored Expressions (Faith in Bloom -flower); Ink: Stazon, jet black; Distress Inks: Weathered Wood, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Mustard Seed and Ranger Craft Tags (Manila #8).
Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6
