Jesus the Way, the Truth and the Life - WAW # 219 and 30 Day Color Challenge

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
My card this week was inspired by the Pattern on Pattern Resist Emboss technique using Distress Inks that I learned at the Online Card Class (Watercolor Intermediate). I will be sharing this at Word Art Wednesday this week for the Anything Goes - Family Friendly challenge #219.  I will also be linking this up at the 30 Day Color Challenge Blog with Kathy Racoosin.

Here is my card for this week:

Here are the ingredients for my card:
Background stamp - Darcie's Stamps
Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz Collection) Watercolor (butterflies)
Ranger White and Clear embossing powder
Distress inks: Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover.
I've gotten quite the variation by overlapping the colors of inks.  I've used a circle die (Spellbinders) as my stencil (so I'm stretching the use of my dies!)
The Scripture is our Word Art From WAW and I've printed it on Vellum and die cut the tag twice, once in card stock and then die cut the vellum.  The seam binding was colored with Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn & Twisted Citron).  I've used all greens and I love how these colors blend so nicely. I've used a paint brush and a water brush to work the Distress ink into the water color paper. I used my heat gun to dry it. The base was cut to 5 x 4.25 and the bright green was the perfect green to mat the top layer. The butterflies were embossed with white embossing powder, then with a water brush I add the Distress inks, dried them with a heat gun, then fussy cut them out and used dimensional adhesive to pop them up.
If you would like the Scripture Art be sure and visit us at the Word Art Wednesday Blog HERE and download the art, then link your project for a chance to win a prize!

This weeks verse is foundational for the Christian. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the only way to God the Father, it is a narrow road. Most don't like to hear that, but it is truth and it will give you life.  Abundant life here and everlasting life to come, what a blessing!  Jesus made the way for you and I through His death and resurrection, we must believe in order to receive this free gift of life.

Thanks so much for visiting and don't forget to link up at Word Art Wednesday this week (it's a two week challenge starting today!)
