SSIC LOC Glad Tidings

The Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge is brought to us this week by one stamper everyone knows and loves - Lisa Hjulberg.

Lisa has chosen the verse:

'Come now, and let us reason together,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.’
Isaiah 1:18
And challenged us to use fall colors in your creation: crimson, orange and gold (or similar)

I have used the is fabulous DP from Basic Grey as my colours - yes there is red in there - in those tiny flowers!  The divine image is the Layers of Color Glad Tidings art stamp set.

The image has been but with the Spellbinders Lacey Circles and sponged with Distress Inks. The birds have been lightly coloured with SU Chalks and has 3D Kindy Glitz added.

The sentiment is also from the Glad Tidings art stamp set and has been cut out with the Spellbinders Labels Seventeen Die, using the Grand Calibur!

The Gold borders are from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs Die - one of my favourite Dies, designed by Nina Brackett

Allsorts - Christmas Easel Card
