***Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

For my card, I choose to use this scripture stamp from Inspired Stamps. The background for the saying is alcohol inks. The pink mettallic paper was stamped with small flower using paint then rubbed with Distress Inks. I used Purple Jute/Twine and 5/8" Two Tone Grossgrain ribbon.

Inspired Stamps

Welcome to this weeks Inspired Stamps showcase. We are showcasing some of the $3.99 Scripture verses. I choose Proverbs 3:5. I am going through some diffucult health issues right now. It is nothing major just trying to get medications straightened out. I am leaning on this verse to get me through this trial. My first card is one the I created the background with alcohol inks. I first stamped flourishes from Fruitful Flourishes with Versamark ink than clear embossed them.

This second card, I used the stamp to create the background. I stamped the saying then sprayed with mists to add color.

My last one is done with mists than the saying was stamped and embossed. It is hard to read and think I would redo with black ink.
