Streams of Living Water
Here's another look at Quiet Waters by Our Daily Bread Designs. The inspiration for this came from three places. First was THIS BEAUTY (breathtaking!) by Sandee Shanabrough, one of ODBD's current guest designers. Second, ANOTHER BEAUTY by fellow ODBD DT sister Angella Crockett. And third, my blog friend Silke Ledlow, who turns white space into art like nobody else. So thanks, ladies, for the inspiration - I love how this one came out!
I stamped on watercolor paper with a freshly re-inked Jet Black Staz-On inkpad (nice and juicy), then watercolored with a water brush and Stampin' Up re-inkers. The image panel is die-cut with one of the Labels 4 Nestabilities by Spellbinders. The scripture panel is die-cut with one of the Mega Curved Rectangles Nestabilities, also by Spellbinders. I created the scored pattern with my Scor-Pal (you can find a basic how-to HERE), and finished off with some edge distressing, ribbon, a hat pin, and pearls. The card base and layered panels are all watercolor paper (a type that I don't care for for watercoloring, but it makes wonderful, thick, textured card bases).
Have a blessed day!
