Light of the World . . .

Hello Again My Friends!
Yep ... two posts for you today!  Finally found a window of time to play along in some challenges.  

The card I have to share with you was created for the fun technique challenge at Joan's Touch.

  • Use scenery stamp
  • Make a layer as I did above
  • any color
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens. 

  • This was a fun technique and one that I had totally forgotten about!  Love how it looks and I think my customers at the craft shows will too! In fact, I think I'll create a few more just for that purpose!
    Recipe for this card:
    Papers:  White cs, Black cs, DCWV Double Sided Basics Stack
    Image: Inkadinkado 'Down By The Seaside'
    Sentiment:  Our Daily Bread 'Light of the World'
    Accessories:  Spellbinder Nestabilities Seventeen, Kaiser pearls, Pop Dots, Spectrum Noir pencils, Versafine Black

    Joan used pop dots on all three layers for her sample card, but I chose to not pop up the bottom layer ... instead I decided to mat it onto black cardstock and build from there.

    Other challenges I'd love to share in are:
    Word Art Wednesday -Anything Goes
    Creating in Faith, Hope & Love - Anything Goes with a Bible Scripture
    Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
    Love to Create - Anything Goes

    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by again today!  I hope you have found inspiration in my creations and will give some of these fabulous challenges a try!

    I have a landscaping crew outside doing the heavy gardening work for me this year (cleaning out the weeds, re-edging all the beds, mulching and removing some of the bushes that didn't make it through our harsh winter [sigh!]) so I'd best go take a peek at the progress. 

    Have a FABULOUS Day!!
