It's SO wonderful that the Crafters of Faith falls on a Sunday!
The COF is a little card group I started a couple of years ago
with faith-based challenges as a way to share fellowship with crafters ♥
And I promise this is really my card!
I know it looks like something my little granddaughter scribbled :)
We take turns scooping up a month and issuing a challenge for the group
and this month our challenge is the talented Jeanette!
Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
has long been one of my favorite Bible verses because it reminds me that I can do things in God’s power. I do not need to be fearful. God will equip me.
For this month’s challenge, I’d like you to think of some paper-crafting technique, fold, or some other thing that you’ve been fearful of trying and let go of the fear and give it a try!
Okay, so back to the scribble!
I decided to try the scribble stamping and used the my Karin Brushmarkers Pro
again - only this time a little differently!
For the 'scribble stamping'
(and I may have made that up! I don't know if that's the actual name!)
I added colored on my glass craft mat and spritzed it with barely any water.
That way, the marker mostly stays the same and just wiggles a bit!
This process did take a bit of time ~ I did it in stages to keep colors separate.
I stamped Best Buds from Paper Smooches, one of my FAVORITE flower stamps,
this time on heavyweight cardstock and it held up super well to the water.
And here's the risky part!
I had to trust that flipping the stamped image onto the wet marker
would land more of less where that part of the image was, providing rich colors.
I did have to guess a little bit where it would end up!
This process was wildly fun!
Messy ~ but definitely creative play :)
The sentiment didn't get as much attention, I'm afraid!
It happened to be on my desk from a previous stamping session ~
rather than have it go to waste, I added it as a fun banner.
My daughter thought this card was hilariously wrong
and I'll admit, I'm a little afraid to post it.
I realize it looks like kid's scribble ~ and that's kinda the idea!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings
