Hello Delightful friends and family!
Just a quick post to share a card for the challenge at Word Art Wednesday this week.
It's an Anything Goes - Family Friendly challenge featuring Scripture Art that each design team member uses to share a project and to share God's Word! Hope you will play along with us, remember you can link up 5 new projects and you have two weeks to play. This challenge sponsors are Lawn Fawn (6x6 paper pad and stamp set) and All Dressed Up (they have some of the cutest digitals). Two wonderful prizes to play for!!
This weeks Scripture Art is from the Gospel of Matthew 5:6. It is free to download! You can grab it at Word Art Wednesday, this weeks challenge is #286 and #287.
Here is my card:
Using my MISTI I stamped this image from the Avery Elle stamp set called Floral Frame. This is the largest stamp in the set and I first stamped in the top right corner, then flipped my paper and stamped on the opposite side bottom. I used Memento Gray Flannel to stamp the floral frame then colored with my Copic Markers and then added Prismacolor Pencils (White, Orange and Process Red) to add some finishing touches. It was then matted on black card stock and adhered to a white card base. Super simple and the coloring was very simple too, very little shading. I did outline everything with Copic N1 and N0 for added depth. Should be very easy to pop into an envelope and sent to a friend in need, it's flat and I didn't add any dimensional embellishments.
The Scripture art from Matthew 5:6 is from the Beatitudes that Jesus taught, you find them in what's know as the Sermon on the Mount. This teaching is about the Christian life, both present and future, it shows that God is sovereign over all. The word beatitude means supreme blessedness or happiness. The blessings promised in the beatitudes are directly related to our obedience to Christ Jesus our Lord. They develop our Christ-likeness by producing a godly character. If we are going to be "filled" we must hunger and thirst after righteousness, this will help us to develop humility, meekness, compassion, holiness, obedience, sensitivity and a growing commitment to Jesus Christ. These are to be evident in our lives and show that we are truly blessed and are born again of the Spirit. Remember we were bought at a price; therefore we glorify God with our body and our spirit which belong to our sovereign God. To God be all the glory!
Thanks so much for visiting! Have an excellent week!
