Creating cards is very soothing for me. There seems to be something about the process of putting ink to paper that puts me at ease. The last few weeks have been a struggle. There are some days when my physical self seems to be entirely disconnected from my emotional self. It is frustrating to not be able to do the things you want to do. Thankfully, the Lord does provide and over the last few days I have made a few tentative forays into the craft room.
For this project, I decided to try working with watercolor paper and I must say it was a wonderful experience. Something about all of the colors mixing and blending together reminded me of my walk with God. Just like the ink, there are places in my life where my walk has been more vibrant and in some areas more muted. Ultimately, it all comes together to create a beautiful tapestry representative of my walk. Just like my card, my walk is not perfect, however, it is truly a reflection of me. Enjoy!
*** Seeds of Inspiration *** The background was easy to make. I started with a watercolor paper and saturated it with water using a mister. I then stamped the desired distress ink colors (Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean & Tumbled Glass) on an acrylic block and lightly misted each with water strategically stamping each where desired. I allowed the water to do all the work... dripping, running, mixing together... It was so fun! And messy! :-) After it dried, I stamped the image and sentiment with black ink and hand traced the outer black frame. I finished it up with a few sequins.
