Stampin' Sisters in Christ . . . new!
Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ, where all of our challenges are based on scripture. This week's hostess is my dear friend and earnest Christ follower Traci, who selected this verse from Revelations 21:5 "And He who sits on the throne said 'Behold I am making all things new.' And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true.'"
Her challenge is to use something new on your card or project this week. It can be a new stamp, paper, embellishment, or a new technique or idea that is new to you! Just have fun with your creation!
What a great challenge in this first, newest month of the year, use something new! God has made all things new and we get our chance to create when we sit down with our stamps and ink. I did order a new stamp set (or two) for myself for Christmas and am pleased to pull out this new stamp from Flourishes. I love looking at the birds and squirrels outside the kitchen window, little spots of color and activity in the winter whiteness.
I used prismacolor pencils on PTI fine linen paper and edged the border of the image with gold stickles, alternating layers of cream and fine linen paper with a touch of patterned paper from Stampin' Up. I did have a lot of fun with this, enjoyed the coloring and the quality of all the supplies I was using. That's our hope for you this week is that you can find some time to sit and create and have fun. Show us something new!
