Praying Through

Hello everyone!  Cathy here to share a card I made for a man at our church who just suffered a stroke.  I'm hoping this card will bring encouragement to him and his wife.  Since I'm hosting the Sketch Challenge today over at Splitcoaststampers, SC541 was used for the design of my card.

This sailboat image from The Sea clear stamp set is perfect for masculine cards and was stamped on watercolor paper using a waterproof ink...Versafine Onyx Black.  The edges were taped down to a cutting board creating a frame around the image.   Kuretake watercolors were brushed onto the dampened paper.  The panel was propped at an angle and enough water was added to the ocean allowing the color to drip down the image, stopping at the taped edge.  Each layer of color was air dried before the next color was added.  The same method was used to apply the colors to the sky, but the panel was left flat to dry, eliminating the drips.  When completely dry, the sentiment from the God is Bigger stamp set was added along with a few black pearls.

Here are the beautiful stamp sets and dies from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store 
that were used to create this card:

Thanks so much for stopping by…hope you've been inspired by your visit!
Be sure to stop back again on Friday for a new Friday Feature!
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
