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)

So Thankful

Hello friends!  How often do you use other artists to inspire you?  Today on the "Ways to Use It" Challenge on Splitcoaststampers, we are taking a card from our Favorites Gallery and using it to inspire our own version of the card.  Karen Dunbrook's masterful backgrounds always inspire me, so of course I used one of her cards, Monoprinting and Flowers, to inspire mine.

Creative Nugget:  The background is a monoprint made with a stencil and Distress Oxide Inks.  Apply ink to the back of a stencil, spritz with water, and with the ink side down, press onto a piece of heavy card stock.   The background used here is actually the second printing and the stencil was turned and applied again to achieve the water colored panel.  The Typewriter Text Background stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps was randomly stamped on the background before the silhouettes and sentiment were stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  So Thankful was white embossed on a hand cut flag to finish the card.  The other Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps used are Nature Silhouettes, Faith Quote Blocks, and So Grateful.

Be sure to check out all of the fun ways Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps with be celebrating their 10th birthday this month.  Just click on the graphic to see all the details and fun giveaways!
