LOC Fruit of the Vine

It is great to see you here again - I have another post for the Layers of Color Fruit of the Spirit Blog Hop - how are you enjoying it so far - aren't the Design Team talented.
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 and Belle Brocade art stencils - you can have the opportunity to win these by playing along with the 2Sketches4You challenge!  During this week we are showing you different cards created  with the theme 'the Fruit of the Spirit'

I have flipped the sketch, just for something different and stamped the Fruitful Harvest image with Distressing Inks and once again  then used an Aqua Brush to drag some of the colour into the image - I love the effect!

The fabulously textured braid has been added along the top of the image and large Kaiser Pearls added in each gap - the lower edge has been torn and inked with Distressing Ink.

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
