In two weeks Christians will observe Lent, a time of reflection and self-examination. This flower from Impression-Obsession is called Lenten Rose , so I thought it fitting to use it for my card.
The verse on my card is from the Word Art Wednesday Challenge. I am entering my card to the challenge, and decided to use this verse with this stamp. It will give me something to look at and reflect on during the upcoming 40 days of lent.
Lenten Rose E13363
I stamped the Lenten Rose image onto Strathmore bristol card stock, and used my Daniel Smith watercolors to paint it. I love watercoloring, especially with floral images.
For the panel, I brushed ripe persimmon distress ink onto
Strathmore bristol card stock and then used a Spellbinder's oval die to cut an oval opening. I printed the verse onto another piece of card stock, then attached this panel to it with foam tape, so that the verse shows through the window.
I added the fussy-cut flower to the panels, using more foam tape for dimension. A few spatters and some white pearl accents complete the front, then I layered it onto a persimmon colored A2 card.
Inside: The stamps for the inside are from IO's Hello MC663 clear stamp set.
Tomorrow starts our new challenge, so I will be back with some inspiration to get your creative juices going.
