Dear Children - Word Art Wednesday #232 and #233

Hello Delightful friends and family!
It's time for another fun Family Friendly Anything Goes Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

 Simon Says Stamp is our sponsor this week, YAY!!

I've used two exclusive Simon Says Stamp products, the stamp called Melody's Easter (stamp and die set) and the Gingham background stamp.  I've used the coordinating dies to cut out the flowers and Melody, (I added another flower to Melody's hair for dimension.).  I've colored everything with Peerless watercolors and was super excited to use my new Arches watercolor paper.  I've been really struggling to find a good flesh tone color/pigment to use, I'm so used to coloring with my Copic markers. This has definitely been a bit out of my comfort zone!

(sorry the pic isn't the greatest, the colors definitely look better in person, even the flesh tones, ha! Gotta work on that though, the photo looks really splotchy on the face, not so much in person, weird!) 

Other Ingredients:
Wink of Stella, clear (on shoes)
Glossy Accents (on flower centers)
Doodlebug Designs - pattern paper (Under the Sea 6x6)
Neenah white card stock (base)
Purple card stock (Bazzill)
Cottage Cutz Oval Cross Stitched dies
Ranger Dye Ink - Electric Lime
Archival - Jet Black Ink

I have to comment on the beautiful Scripture Art this week, (love the fonts and the design!).  A great encouragement Scripture to send to someone to remind them that the Lord is a loving patient Father.  Paul reminds us in Ephesians 5:1 to "Be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ has loved us and given Himself for us an offering and sacrifice to God as a sweet smelling aroma." He has set the example of self sacrificing love and as an obedient Son.  It's our reasonable service to offer ourselves as living sacrifices - holy and acceptable to Him.  As it says in Ephesians 5:8 " For you were  once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light."  It should be our desire to please our heavenly Father - He is so faithful and although times may get difficult and trials and testing occur know that they are filtered through the loving hands of God for our good and His glory.  He desires the very best for His children and we have access to Him always!

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed week!!



  1. I love the layout and colors of your card. It makes me think of children and goes so perfectly with the verse. Thank you for giving glory to our God through your art.
