Nothing is Impossible...

....with God! 
It's Bridget here, with a watercolor creation to share with you today.
I've been praying for a loved one for years and after a long time of praying and waiting, 
a feeling that the situation is impossible begins to creep in.  These words of the 
angel to Mary, the mother of Jesus, from Luke 1:37, are incredibly encouraging to me!   
This one sentence - this one truth - is enough to keep me on track praying!
It's one of the many encouraging phrases in the appropriately named set Be Encouraged .
The silhouette is from the beautiful Nature Silhouettes 2.
I hand cut a tag from watercolor paper and added water with a brush to the whole area
before brushing in some color with Ranger Distress Barn Door ink.
If the ink doesn't "move" and disperse enough,, it works well to spray over it lightly
with water which will do the trick, but don't start with a big blast - just spray 
lightly at first, you can always go for another pass!  Too much spray
will cause the water and ink to just puddle at the lowest place on the
paper.  After thoroughly drying, I stamped the sentiment and silhouette in Color Box
Black Licorice ink - this ink gives a good strong black image.
The background is created by stenciling with the same ink,
using a polka dot stencil and large weave magic mesh.
Thanks for stopping by today - whatever your plans for this weekend, 
I hope it's a good one for you!
