Sorry for the late posting. I usually get the post for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge written the night before and last night I went to bed instead. It finally caught up with me! I've been burning the candle at both ends, as the saying goes, and have had an awful upper respiratory "thing" going on so I chose to go to bed early. So here I am better late than never!
Here is my card for this weeks challenge #260 and #261 (I'm afraid it is not my best work and I really wanted to start over but I just couldn't muster up the creative juices and time was getting away from me.) I like the technique I chose but it's the design of it that makes me "scrunch up my nose". It's missing some design element, I may have to do another one and post the "better" version, IMHO. I love the digital Scripture Art but I'm still learning to resize and "tweak" it a bit to fit my cards. I've printed it out on Vellum and I need to find a better way to display it. I think I will move the Scripture Art to the inside and use a stamp from the Paper Smooches set that goes with the image.
I work on Publisher so if you have any tips that would be really great!
Paper: 140lb cold press Strathmore; navy card stock, white Neenah bright white card stock for the base.
Stamp: Paper Smooches - A Blessed Christmas
Dies: Simon Says Stamp! Stitched Circle
Ink: Archival Jet Black; Distress Inks (Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Broken China)
Coloring Medium: Zig Clean Color Brushes
Ribbon: from Michael's
I believe the beautiful Scripture from John 3:16 used today is perfect for our Christmas season. Jesus was our gift from God the Father to restore fallen mankind to Himself. He initiated the restoration process with the beautiful promise of eternal life. How could anyone say no to that? All we have to do is believe.
I believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, do you? I hope so... He is the only way that leads to eternal life.
Thanks for visiting and I pray your week is a blessed one!
