I hope you've been blessed with warmer Spring weather where you live! We've had some sun and some snow this past week, but I definitely think Spring is on it's way. It is time for the April Challenge at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, where you get three chances to play along - the layout sketch, the card sketch and the scripture inspiration!
This month I'm playing along with the Scripture Inspiration, and I came up with this bookmark I created using my Cricut and Distress Inks. There is so much meaning in these 13 words if we stop to take a breath and let God lead the way. Maybe I'll do better remembering this if I glance at this bookmark daily!
I first used a white piece of cardstock that I had wrote the scripture on with my Cricut Explore pen and sponged on 3 colours of Distress Inks. Then, I used a stencil and some Distress Paint on top, and next stamped on a scroll stamp in brown ink.
I used a cross diecut from the Cricut Library and layered it on top of my bookmark. A bit of Abandoned Coral Distress Ink added to the top cut coordinated with the painted stenciled areas.
I used some multicoloured silk ribbon along with some bakers twine fit through the bookmark, which I layered on a black cardstock backing to finish it off.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll check out the SEM blog to see what the other Design Team members have come up with and enter your own project.
