SSCC Guest Designer

Today I am honoured to be the Guest Designer over the Stampin' Sisters in Christ, representing Layers of Color, who are sponsoring this weeks challenge.  What an honour, you know I love the faith based challenges, they are so inspiring and what could be better than being inspired by the Word of God AND stamping - Heaven on earth! LOL!

The scripture this week is one we hear often and can probably quote by heart - this is something I am challenged by often and that is not just to know it BY heart but IN my heart, that is is not just a fact in my heart but a truth in my heart - something that is a reality in my life.

Joshua 24:15 As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

I made this card but after a comment Kristine made I will probably use it as a Wall Hanging.  I typed the scripture in my favourite font, Telegraph, on the computer and printed it onto white CS then cut it out in the shape of a cross, distressing the edges and sponging - I love how this turned out, so rustic.  I popped it up on 3D foam dots and layered it onto the embossed black CS.  I have used lots of layering, distressing and sponging with this card.

I used the Layers of Color art stamp set Merci Bouquet, which is this weeks prize by the way, these have been coloured with chalks and had Kindy Glitz added lightly to the centres.  I then cut the images out and attached them to the two opposite corners.  On the the other corners I have used the wood paper that I was sent in a RAK from one of my Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Sisters Sue MacMahon from McMahon Five Designs- you can read all about it here.

As you will have seen I have also added these gorgeous wings from the Layers of Color art stamp set Regal Wings - I am showing you this close up so you can see how they have been coloured with Chalks and what a difference that little but of Kindy Glitz has added.

The final touch is the hardware that is added with the scripture address and the cross attached with gold thread.

I am linking this to the Creative Inspirations Challenge - distressing
