Hello Delightful friends and family!
I have so much to be thankful for and that is exactly what the Scripture Art for this weeks Word Art Wednesday expresses! Give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good; For His mercy endures forever! Living out a life of thankfulness must start with the Lord, He is our Creator! He gives us our breath so that we can praise and thank Him! Thank You Lord for Your steadfast love and faithfulness.
Hope you play along this week with us and share your thankfulness with us too at the Anything Goes/Family Friendly Challenge at Word Art Wednesday! The new challenge starts today November 8th.
Here is my card:
I've been trying to use some of my watercolor backgrounds that I've made then set aside for a "rainy day". This one was using a technique I learned in an Online Card Class I took last year. The colors were perfect for an Autumn card, I matted it in dark brown (the picture looks like a black mat but its a rich brown) and added a brown ribbon (American Crafts) and a die cut leaf (Lawn Fawn - small Stitched leaves), I used paper for the leaf from Doodlebug Design Flea Market (6x6 pad), I've added Oxide Distress ink to the edges (Vintage Photo). The watercolor paper is made by Ranger and is 118-lb; I'm not sure what watercolors I used, they probably were the Reeves brand that comes in a tube. I used a flat brush #1/2 also from Ranger. I've added a few drops of Nuvo Jewel Drops (Limoncello) to the leaf, just 'cause I could 😁 it didn't really add much to the final look so if I was to do it again I probably would have left it off.
Don't forget to play along with us at Word Art Wednesday, link up and perhaps you may win one of our prizes!! This challenge our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp! Most of the items I've used in my card you can get at Simon Says Stamp online store. You have 2 weeks to play and you can link up to 5 projects! We had 290 entries last challenge!
