An Inspirational Message

I love the colors in the new DRS Designs new color challenge:


Makes me want some Jordan Almonds (I think that is what these are).  I used most these colors in my card but I hid them in splashes on the wood planks and the sign. 


I made my bg planks with the DRS Woodgrain background stamp.  After stamping it, I rubbed the planks with a sponge dipped repeatedly in SU! Chocolate Chip ink.  Next I colored the planks with a pink water color pencil and then wet and spread the color.  Then I splashed on some blue and green wet water colors I mixed up.  To get in some cream and tan, I mixed up some modeling paste with some tan water color and spread it over some dry wall tape in the corners.  I made my main panel using the new Know Jesus Know Hope and doodled around the edges.  My red was too strong so I toned it down with some gold Stickles which I also added to my rolled roses.

Fun card - now I am trying to figure how to do the same type of thing on a Bible Journaling page - can't wait to try it (minus the roses). 

Hugz,

Nancy

  7. This wood grain is perfectly done - and a great way to use the colors! I also really like the way you attached the great word panel. The overall look is so fitting to go with your Bible journal.
    Thank you for your most kind words on my blog. That AI image is part of a pop-up decoupage kit. I do not have the stamp or I would send you some images!
