Bible journaling - Lily

Monday October 16, 2017
 
This is another design that Kate had. I traced it onto the bible page and colored with Prismacolored pencils. The verse is in Matthew 6:28  "And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing."

Wishing you all the Joys that winter holds - Creative with Stamps #19

Sunday October 15-31, 2017
 
Well it's mid month reminder at
I hope you're having fun playing along and I love seeing different shoe -foot wear images..
 

 
If you follow me, I mentioned when I posted my shoe card for Oct. 1st.. I only had two shoe images. One I used on a card I created in the sprig and the tennis shoes on 10-1...and I needed to check over my stamps and see if I had anything else I could use... Well I had a pair of flip flops (thongs when I was a little girl many many years ago) and these skates.. So since it's not summer anymore I chose the skates.. Their not shoes but again shoes can be determined in so many ways.. heels, tennis, flats, boots, uggs, clogs, flip flops, sandles.... and skates.. sure there are a lot more..
 
So I stamped the Paper Trey skates all over the card base. I then took Simon Says snow flakes in three sizes and stamped them in the open spaces. I took my Kuretake Gansai paints and blended the pearl white with a very very small amount of black to get the silver and painted in the blade of the skate. I took my Zig marker and did a light wash over the skate. I added Nuvo drops to the center of the flakes. I stamped the Sentiment from Paper Trey Ink with Ranger and added it across the top. I took some Silver glitter washi tape and put a strip down each side. I then added foam behind the skate panel and added to the card base..  Christmas will be here before we know it.. Hum who will this card go to??

Bible journaling - Believe

Saturday October 14, 2017
 
I love the word Believe.. I have a white tattoo on the inside of my left arm by my wrist..
Acts 16:31 Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household"
Kate had a stencil so I traced the letters and then drew some flowers and leaves. I had better flowers in my mind but this is what I ended up with.. I have grown to love it.. I feel this is what it was supposed to be and to leave it alone. I colored with Prisma colored pencils and a little shading with Stampin up ink.

Hang in there - Bugaboo / Catch the bug - Free Friday

Friday October 13, 2017
 
this free-b was available last week. I had last weeks and this weeks images messed up.
 
Are you ready for another Free Friday image from Bugaboo..
You can see the Design Teams creations at Catch the bug.
 
 
This is the Free Friday image from Bugaboo "Stella peeker bra"
I used a Verve sentiment "hang in there" as I thought this went well with the image. I suppose you could use this for all sorts of occasions. I automatically think of Breast cancer..  I colored the image with copics and used a white gel pen and Spectrum Noir glitter pen.

Take a moment to Remember - Sunny Day Crafting #56

Wednesday October 11, 2017
 
Are you having a good October??  Hope your weather is what you like.
 I know some like snow, rain, wind, sun, fall... and I just hope you're in the state that has the weather you like. 
 
Welcome to another challenge at Sunny Day Crafting #56
 
The Yellow team has the new challenge for you and it is
 "O" is for OVAL
 
 
I really knew when I knew the theme was OVAL what stamp I wanted to use.. I love the Paper Trey Ink "take a moment to REMEMBER how special you are"  I just needed to make sure it fit the OVAL stitched die from My Favorite Things.. Yes it did if I lowered it enough. I don't mind the empty part at the top because I think the sentiment needs to stand out. I stamped the PTI leaves with PTI ink and die cut them out and then cut them apart to fit the oval.. I added some goosebumps just to give it some shine. I tried to add half pearls but they were to bright. I like these goosebumps. They are from Queen and Co. I took the background piece and dry embossed the large dots.

Wednesday October 11, 2017
 
Welcome back to another challenge at The Merry Christmas Challenge #38
 
It's the Holly and Ivy team back to give you some inspiration
 
Our themes are always ANYTHING GOES + CHRISTMAS
 
 
This is another fun OLD stamp from The Cottage Stamper.. it's a wood block rubber stamp. I black heat embossed the image and colored with my Zig Markers. I added some Nuvo silver sparkle to the snowflakes and using my Simon Says scallop border die cut it out and added to the red paper. I added a teal ribbon along the side and a few half pearls. Called it done. Wow that is three Christmas cards in just a few weeks. Liking this and I am able to use OLD stamp sets.. I think I heart a Ah Haaaaaaa in a singing voice when I opened that closet dresser drawer..
