"The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever." Isaiah 40:8

I've recently signed up for a "background technique" class at Color Me Creative Classroom and the second technique that I have learnt is faux watercolour background. This is the card I made incorporating that technique:

Elizabeth Whisson, Flourishes, Poppy Patch, Our Daily Bread Designs, Scripture Collection 9, handmade card, copic, Spellbinders Nestabilities Gold Labels Four
I added Distress Stickles "Dried Marigold" and "Peeled Paint" to the poppy and used a Molotow white paint pen for the "white dots" in the background of the poppy. The flower patterned paper has Distress Stain "Picket Fence" sprayed onto it using a mini mister (after being covered with Distress Stain "Antique Linen".

I am entering this card in Word Art Wednesday Challenge #107 - Anything Goes. They have posted a beautiful verse this week, Psalm 19:1 and I found that I actually had the same verse on a stamp (from Our Daily Bread Designs - Scripture Collection 9).

Some more photos of my card:
Bit hard to see but both patterned papers have been covered with Distress Stain "Antique Linen". Some parts of the words have AtYou Spica #23 Pitch Black added to them for added sparkle.

I covered the paper with Distress Stain "Antique Linen" then splattered some water droplets on the page and dried it with a heat gun. I added some Flourishes "Poppy Patch" stamps to one corner using Distress Ink "Tattered Rose" and "Bundled Sage". I then inked the edges with Distress Ink "Walnut Stain".

  2. This is absolutely stunning! I love the pattern papers you've chosen. They compliment one another perfectly, and the sentiment of scripture is just SO lovely. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this delightful card in our challenge this week, and please join us again soon.
