The Word of God Shall Stand Forever

Hello Friends - Todays card was inspired by the rainbow and the beautiful colors that are displayed in them. God offers such HOPE through His Word and I love to create using His Word as my foundation. What better way to offer encouragement to someone, too?

To create this card, stamp the Creative Worship: Living Word Clear Stamp Set image from Sweet & Sassy Stamps using Black Staz On Ink, on Watercolor Paper. Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has some beautiful images designed just for Creative Worship and Bible Journaling. Have you tried it yet? I have to admit, I have not BUT I have seen some beautiful work doing it and I am anxious to give it a try. With that said, I do have a small fear of it too. *Smile*

To create the background, stagger the text from the Creative Worship: Living Word Clear Stamp Set and stamp in Black Staz On ink, creating a pattern around the body. Once the images have been stamped, I grabbed a variety of water based ink pads (So Saffron, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, More Mustard, Gumball Green, Bashful Blue) to create the background. Using a water color paint brush, stroke the colors across the background to create the desired effect.  Then color the body with more browns and rusts to create a more neutral look. Use a heat tool to dry the watercolor paper. Using Gumball Green cardstock and Craft cardstock, create the base of the card.

I just love how the image on this background turned out. I didn't want to add too much to it, so I scattered a few sequins on the background to add a little pizzazz to the project. What do you think?
