Just popping in quickly to share a card I made for some dear friends of ours. They have become like family and we are so very blessed to have them in our life. I pray you all have friends that are like family, too, because they are a gift!
I'll be submitting this card to the Word Art Wednesday site. I really like this site! Every week there's a new Scripture text that you can download and use on a card. I haven't done that yet just b/c I tend to use sentiments that are ready to go. But, there's a lot of texts that I really like that they've shared on their site. Every week there's an "anything goes" challenge so it's great to share cards there. Here's my card:
Turns out I won this great stamp set from The Craft's Meow last month. It's called Kindred Spirits and I love it! The sentiments are great and there's tons of pieces in the set. You can outline the lilies, silhouette the lilies, stamp the different parts of the lilies--and the leaves, too--and you get really play with a lot of the set! I decided to keep my card simple--just having 3 flowers and stems stamped in that vibrant wine color with a mossy green for the leaves. But I wanted to show the flowers kind of bathed in sunlight. To do that, I masked the flowers off and then used the "friend" definition stamp from Hero Arts to add that sunshine. I then thought it would be nice to sort of frame the main panel by sponging the wine color on the edges but I didn't like it. So, I grabbed some chipboard corner edges, inked it with the same color I used on the flowers, and added those to the card. I added the sentiment and some gems and the card was done.
Thanks for stopping by!
