LOC Fruit of the Spirit Blog Hop Winner...and more!

Hello everyone - it is time for another post for the Layers of Color Fruit of the Spirit Blog Hop and yes....I will be announcing the winner of the Fruitful Harvest art stamp set

Layers of Color is celebrating sponsoring 2SketchesYou. 

The Design Team have shown you their cards created using the Fruitful Harvest art stamp set along with the Botanical Swirls art stencil and Belle Brocade art stencil - you can have the opportunity to won these by playing along with the 2Sketches4You challenge!  During this week we will be showing you different cards created  with the theme 'the Fruit of the Spirit'

I have stamped the Fruitful Harvest image with Distressing Inks and then used an Aqua Brush to drag some of the colour into the image and add highlights with Distressing Ink - it is the first time I have done this and I love the effect!

Belle Brocade art stencil has been sponged with Distressing Ink along the edge of the DP from DCWV 'Once Upon a Time" set - this art stencil is perfect for edging - I love the almost filigree look it has!

I added a gold button with a Kaiser Brad through it and the gorgeous fibre wool that has been out for effect!

The scripture that is the central theme for our Blog Hop is

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Against such things there is no law
Galatians 5:22

All of the Fruit of the Spirit are qualities we would love to have working in our lives - but which one do we need the most - well, the truth is we need them all - there is none that is better than the other!  Each fruit has it's own purpose and as we allow it to grow in our lives it brings a harvest of eternal value!!

Before we go any further - the WINNER of the fabulous Rise & Shine art stamp set is.....
