It is Well With My Soul

Here is my card creation for the #2 challenge/study at Triple the Scraps.  If you haven't visited this blog, I really suggest that you pay Patter a visit...the inspiration, both creative and spiritual, that you sill find there is amazing. And why not come join us for a year-long Hymn and Scripture challenge? Challenges/studies are posted every 2 weeks, and you can join in at any time... the third has just been posted...

So albeit a little late, here is my card creation...

This challenge uses a hymn It is Well With My Soul. Again, another hymn I am not familiar with, but even before reading the in-depth post about the hymn, I had been swept up in the words of "How Great Thou Art", one of my Grandmother's favourite hymns.

In choosing the right image to use with this hymn, I knew it had to be a peaceful one. I pictured hills and streams, but found this image (I'm pretty sure it is a TLC digitisation, but will search my collection and attribute the correct designer).  I printed the (flipped) image on vellum, and coloured the back of it with Spetrum Noir markers. It is fixed with brads to the hymn layer, that I have left uncoloured.  The hymn is them matted with a green  Core'dinations vintage textured card. I fixed it to a white cardbase.

As well as linking this into the hosted challenge/study at #2 Hymn Scripture Challenge - Triple the Scraps (thank you Patter!) I am also linking this up at Word Art Wednesday #66.....thanks for peepin'!
