LOC Fear Not!

I have always enjoyed combinging my faith and cardmaking, infact they are my favourite card to make.  I have a 'Faith Art' Gallery over at Layers of Color and try to add to it weekly.  This week I was having a number of 'flat days' and was feeling like nothing much was coming together when my DH advised me to go back to my beginnings and what I loved - so a faith based VINTAGE card soon took to back to card making with ideas flowing through my head at an alarming rate!



I used the Gothic Crosses set and Royal Birds, chalking them both and adding Kindy Glitz lightly to the wings of the dove.



This has been popped up on Dimensionals and attached to the left hand side of that fabulous scripture from Kathy (aka Wattle on SCS), which has been sponged around the edges and layered onto black CS.  Crochet lace fom Maxine (aka Kiwime on SCS)  is attached under the lower edge of the sentiment!  This is all adhere to a Scalloped Oval Nestie, which has had a light spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

The DP has been emossed through the Cuttlebug and the edges sponged around with Distressing Ink and layered onto Black CS, leaving only a very fine border of black.  I stamped a Layers of Color image from the Old World Flourish set onto the Photo Corners and have decided I really like that look, it adds so much to the corners!  I also did some very light gold highlights with a Glitter Pen.

                        


Isn't it amazing what creating something can do for you - I felt so much better after making this card and taking onboard the truth in this scripture!  This passion of ours does wonders for one's heart - on so many levels!

Thank you for stopping by today and for the fabulous comments you leave me.  I get such a 'buzz' out of knowing you have been - if only we could be here at the same time IRL!!  I hope your day is filled with peace!!  God bless you!

EDIT: This card fits the Stamp Something Challenge Blog where you are to use brown and the Dirty Dozen Challenge this month for 'Winged Things'

  1. Awesome card, Linda. It calls to my heart. I love the colors and the vintage feel to it. I noticed those embossed corners right away and thought I'm going to have to do that soon! Thanks for the inspiration.

    BTW, your blog is now updating on my sidebar. Did you figure out what was preventing that or is it a happy conincidence? Anyway, I am so happy it is because now I can really keep track of when you post new creations and stop by more often!

    Thanks again for the beautiful eye candy.

    Blessings & hugs,
    Linda

  2. Linda this is just so inspiring -= and so 'you'. What a blessing to turn to scripture and be inspired.
    A scripture that has really blessed me recently is Col 2:9&10.

    Blessings
