Psalm 84:11

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Hope you're having a great day! We've had rain here all day, but since I've been in my craft room most of the time, it hasn't bothered me one bit! For my card today, I used another Psalm stamp from Verve. This stamp is one that has been at Verve for several years, but I just recently saw it here and loved it! Stunning, isn't it? While my card isn't nearly as luscious as Tosh's card, I was pleased with how it turned out.
The supplies I used are at the bottom of the post, and it's pretty easy to see what I did, so I won't go into too much detail. On the b&w dp, I used Copic markers and added small gold and teal accents. The Award Banner die cut was made with white textured cs. I colored it with Peacock Feathers and Scattered Straw Distress Inks (the green is where the two colors mixed). For just a little more texture, I stamped a newsprint stamp on the banner with Black Soot Distress Ink. The sentiment panel is framed by two stacked corrugated frames. The bottom layer was painted with black acrylic, and the next layer was painted with metallic gold, black and teal paint. The word, "Sun," in the sentiment was colored with Copics, then I gave it sparkle with Diamond Stickles.
The two strips of b&w cs on the inside were from the negative die cut left over from cutting the Labels 7 panel for the front.

Thanks for stopping by today!
