I decided to do something different for this challenge by Created By Hands Challenge http://quietfire.ning.com/group/createdbyhandchallenge. Instead of a card, I decided to make a decoration for my new craft room. At the moment, it looks more like a storage room for crafts than a craft room. Hm, maybe next month when the children go to school, I can finish organizing and decorating.
I started this project with stamping in Distressed Ink Rusty Hinge the verse God is my Salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord is my Shepherd and my song. He has become my salvation. Isaiah 12:2 (from Our Daily Bread Designs). This was stamped onto Elegant Designs Oval Spellbinders/Nestabilities from Our Daily Bread Designs Exclusive Dies Collection. I used Tea Dye Distressed Ink and sponged the color. I went over the border in Tea Dye Distressed Stickles. I also stamped the butterfly image with Distressed Ink Rusty Hinge and cut the butterfly out and stained in Spiced Marmalade and then brushed with Perfect Pearls - Copper.
The out card was stained with Antique Mahogany and Walnut Stain. I stamped the flower and stems image in Rusty Hinge and the stained in Tea Dye. I took a white ribbon and dyed it in Sunset Orange alcohol ink. I added a button and then decided it needed a little pop of color so I punched out the bird and stem and stained in Blue Jeans and the branch in Crushed Olive. I brushed over the bird with Perfect Pearls Blue.
Thank you for looking.
