New Life at Twist of Faith!

Well now, I really messed up in a NEW way this week.  I haven't been at my blog for two days, and didn't notice until today that my Twist of Faith card did not appear on Tuesday. I knew full well that I had readied the post to coincide with the scheduling of the challenge!  On my discovery today, I realised my mistake.  I had set it to post on Friday instead of Tuesday!  I guess it shows that I'm having a really rough week! On with my show....

This week (and there is still oodles of time to join in!) our challenge for you at Twist of Faith Cards  is NEW LIFE ... whether it be babies, spring, or something new for you... so many interpretations! And of course your creation is to include a scripture, quote or verse (that is positive... words of cheer,  healing, encouragement, or support).

We are sponsored by the wonderful Michelle Perkett Studio, and I can't do anything BUT love Michelle's images and artistry! I created my card using the Princess Lotus image...

I drove myself nuts trying to place my scripture on the front of my card... so I eventually gave up, and placed it inside.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11

I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, but used a Pro Marker Aqua for her hair... I think the aqua markers give a better 'uneven' colour for hair!  At least in my meagre collection of markers it does!)  I used glitter pens to touch on her sari trim, and rhinestones in the centres of the flowers she wears. I matted the image on white and then vintage textured blue, then on a wonderful floral paper, and on the blue again.  All is fixed onto a white cardbase.

The design team has created some marvellous designs in the showcase at the Twist of Faith Cards blog, so I we can entice you to join in our NEW LIFE Challenge!  Thanks for peepin'!

This turned out real pretty. I love the flower paper, and you've colored her so nicely.
