Hello Spring: Psalm 104:19

Spring already! Here in Florida we never even had anything resembling winter! That is fine though, Spring is still a welcome season - it is more than jsut the weather. I am so glad you are joining us for another challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

This week our inspiration comes from the dear and talented MariLynn with her scripture choice being Psalm 104:19. Be sure to read her devotion on our home page at SSIC.

"He made the moon to mark the seasons"


This card was a bit of a change up for me. I am not a vintage person yet I do think that this looks rather vintage. This week is the 1st birthday of TCM and I wanted to use one of the stamps that I had purchased there. This stamp is a LaBlanche stamp and I really do like working with them. I stamped the image on special paper that is extremely smooth. Then I colored using distress inks. I sponged on some ink and then spritzed some water on it. I dried off the water and repeated the process a couple of times. I finished it off with some clear heat embossing over the entire panel. Distressing the edges was an afterthought. I just realized that Lisa does not carry the LaBlanche stamps any longer. Sorry about that.

The challenge this week is; "with the change of seasons this week, make a card/project showing something related to the new season".

This week's sponsor is a fantastic stamp set called Faith in Bloom by Taylored Expressions
