Hello and Happy Sunday! Hope you're having a good weekend.
Here's a card I made for the Featured Stamp challenge at Splitcoaststampers honouring Bonnie, aka bon2stamp - and HERE is Bonnie's card which inspired me.
The ship and vintage map background were stamped and sent to me by lovely friend in Virginia, Roberta.
I sponged the background and then spritzed it with acrylic paint, both teal and black, before stitching it down to the black framing.
The sentiment is computer generated using Latienne Becker font - because the cloud dies are solid it was hard to get the sentiment centered - I lay the die over the printed sentiment and penciled around it to see where it would cut, then adjusted it, then taped it to the cardstock for the final cut - viola! The clouds have been lightly sponged.
I'm finding it hard to make a card without using teal these days, and it seemed right for an ocean theme!
I love this verse from Hebrews - the hope referred to is based on two things, as seen in the surrounding verses: it's impossible for God to lie and He promised to bless us through Jesus, who made it possible for us to be right with God! Yay! I will be saving this card to send to just the right person who might be going through a time when they need reassured of that anchor!
Nothing like the storms of life to put us in need of firm security.
