For Our Children


I have been having a lot of fun with my new stamps from Layers of Color - it is like being let loose in a Candy Store...I love trying the different sets together.

This card is for the 2RedBananas Challenge where sentiments were to be the main focus. I had this sentiment left after scrapbooking a page I hope to upload later today and could not resist using it. Dear friends of our family have it on their fridge and it says so much to me as a parent!
I have used the Paisley Embossing Folder and sponged around the edges. The sentiment , which is computer generated (don't you just love this font - Telegraph, from memory!) and layered on True Thyme CS. I then cut around images from Old World Flourish, Beloved Wings and Royal Birds from Layers of Color, sponging them and adding touches of colour with chalks. The top image and the bird have been popped up on dimensionals. For the final touch I lightly added clear Kindy Glitz to give the bird some shimmer. I am amazed how much I use Kindy Glitz, as I have never really been a 'bling' person...but oh how things can change as we evolve!!
I am happy with the way this card turned out, is was reasonably quick to make. Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your comments - you know I love to know when you have been - it makes my day!

  1. Linda what a wonderful sentiment! I have loved this one for years! I can tell you that it's the wings part that's the hardest!!! But it's true... we want them able to go off on their own and live a life that is all God wants it to be...

    I love how you colored this and the bling is perfect! These stamps are just perfect for your style my friend! God bless you as you bless others through these beautiful stamps!
