Word Art Wednesday - 230 and 231 A Gentle Whisper

Hello Delightful Friends and Family
Hope all is going well and now that Spring is in full bloom I hope you are enjoying the outdoors as well as getting some time in your craftroom. I've been getting all my sample cards for my June classes finished so I've been very busy.  Just haven't had time to post them.  However, they are posted over at the Scrapper's Edge classes page.  I still have one class in May left to teach next week then 3 in June. I'm still in the planning stages for July!

Today I get to share a card for the Word Art Wednesday Family Friendly - Anything Goes Challenge #230, #231.  Remember this is a two week challenge.

Our sponsor this challenge is: Freckled Fawn and Papercraft Memories.  A huge thank you to our sponsors each month!

Here's my card:

This is the free Word art that we would love for you to use in the challenge, of course it's not required but it would be fun to see your ideas with it.

Here are the ingredients to my card:
Stamp: Penny Black Gentle Whisper (brush stroke style)
Peeless Water colors
Pretty Pink Posh sequins (sweet pea mix)
Ranger Water color paper (I stamped on the smooth side this time)
Neenah Bright white (80lb) card stock
Bazzill purple
Archival Tree Branch ink
WRMK Genius Die (came with cutting plates)

I stamped the image using the Tree Branch Ink and then watercolored the piece not knowing for sure how the Peerless would react and cover the ink but I think it turned our nicely.  The die (a set) was included with the Genius cutting plates and I inked around the edges with Distress inks (Wilted Violet and Chipped Sapphire).  FYI: This was the stamp I used last month in a class!  The ladies loved the stamp and the technique they learned in class!

The Word Art comes from Karen Murray from this months sponsor  Papercraft Memories.
A wonderful verse from Psalm 33.   It reminds us that to every generation the Word of God and the purpose of the Lord stands forever.  How long is forever?  Forever!! His redemptive plan was put into place before the foundation of the world.   He wants us to know His thoughts and heart towards us, and we are able to through His Word.  The Lord constantly reminds us through the writer in the Book of Psalms to seek Him.  Lately, I've been memorizing portions of   Psalm 63 so that I might know Him better.  I encourage you to seek Him early and to be thankful for His faithfulness. We live in a perplexing time, cling close and follow after the Lord Jesus - He is our Rock and salvation!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a blessed week.
