Leftovers

I can’t stand to waste and I really liked the front panel I did for Easter card attempt 2, so used what I had cut out of that panel to make another card.  Embossed the cross again, but on that panel, this time.  Did it on white again, too.  Inked another base card with blue, then put it all together.  Yes, I’m putting this in all 3 challenges, again: Mod Squad, MFT sketch and MFT color.

This one makes me happy, too.  It’s a peaceful reminder of the truth of who Jesus is and who I am because of what He did for me.

Thanks for a bit more of your time.

A Second Attempt

Decided to try another Easter card.  It’s my favorite time of the year, as it’s why I have hope, so had to find a good way to share that.

4-5-20 MFT Easter 2

For this one, I used some Distress Oxide inks to blend the front panel and the front of the base card.  Oh, this made me so much happier.  I embossed the cross on the base card, after doing the ink blending, in a copper embossing powder.  The lily needed to stand out, at least the one, so embossed it again on white card.  Cut that one out and popped it up.  Used a Silhouette torn rectangle die on the front panel, so you could see the cross.

This I like.  Sigh of contentment.

Thanks for checking back in with me.  I’ll be adding this to the MFT sketch challenge, color challenge, and the Mod Squad challenge.

Easter

I have been planning and trying to do Easter cards.  They are not going well.

This one was an attempt to follow the current MFT Color Challenge, as well as make an Easter card, which works for the Mod Squad spring challenge.

4-5-20 MFT Color Easter

Cut a sunburst stencil using my Silhouette and attempted to blend the light yellow, with the bright pink, like a sunrise.  I’m not too happy with the way it turned out.  Oh well.

I stamped the lamb first, then cut a sticky note for my hill, a mask for the lamb, as well as some clouds.  Laid my stencil over the top and started inking from the center with the yellow, then the pink.  Took the stencil off and did my best to use the blue in between, on all the white areas.  After inking, I pulled off all the masks, then inked my hill.  I wasn’t happy with it, so added some marks with my alcohol markers.  It wasn’t great, so added a bit more of the green with a sponge just lightly dabbing.  It’s better than it was.  Added a bit of very light brownish gray to my lamb and layered the whole panel on a bright pink base.

Not perfect, but you get the idea.  Jesus, the sacrificial lamb for my sins.  So very glad He gave me the opportunity to know Him.

Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today!

 

March 2020

This is quite the month.  As so many activities were canceled, I actually had a bit of time to sit and create this weekend.  Unfortunately, our internet decided it doesn’t want to work, so have to try and post what I can from work.

3-22-20 Rob B-day

This was another attempt at a birthday card for my husband that I like.  I had the tree and really wanted to put a dinosaur with it.  Had this Rubbernecker set, which worked okay.  The background was the challenge.  Decided to use light watercolors, but they turned out way to dark, so covered with vellum.  Looks like my volcano is floating, however.  Oops!  My husband will get this one, whether I like it, or not, as he won’t care that the volcano is floating.  Oh well.

Here’s an Easter card I made following (sort of) the MFT Sketch challenge for the week.

3-22-20 MFT Sketch

All of the pieces, except the base are vellum.  Coloring the vellum took a while.  Did it with pencil.  Hope you enjoy this one.  Used three different sets, but as I’m at work, I don’t have the names of them.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me.  Remember, God is in control, no matter what the world looks like.  His plan is good.  Though as we fight Him tooth and nail, it’s harder from our perspective to get there.  I’ve read the last chapter, it all works out in the end, as long as we trust Him.  You, whether I know you, or not, are being prayed for.
