My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Just another day in Paradise!

These cards were created using a Tim Holtz stamp and a Heartfelt Creations stamp..."Just another day in Paradise!" (Phil Vassar)

The country scene by Heartfelt Creations was stamped on white paper using black dye ink.  The old truck by Tim Holtz was also stamped on white paper using black dye ink.

The scene was colored using a variety of dye/chalk inks and daubers to apply the ink.  After the scene was colored, I used a make-up sponge and applied a layer of yellow dye ink over the entire surface.

After the pictures were colored, they were covered with Versamark clear pigment ink, sprinkled with clear embossing powder.
The embossing powder was heated until it melted, forming a clear finish on the printed scenes.  I use a 6inchx6inch ceramic tile and 12inchx12inch ceramic tile when heating embossing powder on paper.  The tiles protect the table surface and help to heat the paper surface evenly.

The card is assembled by adhering the scene to a mat, using pop-dots to adhere the truck to the scene, and glue a verse to the scene.  Note the differences in the cards.  The same ink was used for all the cards.  The difference comes when applying the ink and the embossing powder.
