and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Here is a sample I've made with His Child using the sketch from today's Sketch Challenge 431 on Splitcoaststampers:


Creative Nugget:  I love how quickly a card can come together when you begin with a sketch!  The background panel was made with two different papers from the a lilybeedesign paper pad and the fence from the Fence and Grass Die Set.  A cloud stencil was used to sponge the clouds on the blue paper.  A little sponging was done on the Rectangle Nestie while the panel was left in the die.  The adorable silhouette image was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The grass was added with some Copic Markers and a Gelly Roll Pen.  The sentiment was stamped and the curve was hand cut using the contours of the words.  A few birds from the Nature Silhouettes clear stamp set and black pearls were added to finish the card.

Here's another card using the Chalkboard Technique:

Your cards have brought a tear to my eyes today! I guess I just needed to read these sentiments today! Gorgeous cards! Really love how you created the scene on the first one! I have been working on trying not to use the whole card as part of my scene this is a perfect example of what I am trying to create but I keep missing! :)

Heather said...

Both are beautiful! Love how you used the papers as part of the "scene" on the first card. And that fence die is just too cute! Your chalkboard card is fabulous. Such a great look.

What a pretty, fun card, love your layout & scene, and the way you trimmed along the top of the sentiment!

I must have the fence and grass die. It is amazing. The nestie is the perfect for the silhouette. The whole card is just too perfect. I am not really into the chalkboard technique, but the pink and black coloring is great. I might have to try that. Thanks

Very pretty silhouette cards Cathy. Especially love the first one with the fabulous scene! The butterfly and fence look perfect.

Jennifer said...
