And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Faux Tin Tiles

Hello friends!  It's thundering and pouring here, and Kody just jumped up on the bed…no loud noises for this big baby! Since I'm now awake, I thought I would post a card I made using faux tin tiles.

Creative Nugget: The Faithful Fish Pattern Die was used to emboss aluminum foil glued to a lightweight piece of chipboard creating the pattern for the tiles.  The panel was painted with white acrylic paint and when dry rubbed with blue and green Inka Gold. A Spellbinders Square Nestie was used to cut this piece into individual tiles.  Distress inks were used to make the "No Wrinkle Distress" panel on the background which was stamped lightly in Watering Can ink using the Fishing Net Background stamp.  The Waves on the Sea fishing boat image was watercolored using Distress Inks. A sailor's knot was tied around the card using dyed rope twine and Mini Tag Dies were used to create the tiny tags cut from left over scraps of faux tin.  The little sentiment is from the Mini Tag Sentiments stamp set.  All stamps and dies are from Our Daily Bread Designs and the design for the card was inspired by the Shining the Light Sketch Challenge for this week.

This card will be entered for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by…the storm has passed, so now I think I'll try to get a little more shut eye!
