As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
This is an interesting take on vintage as I have made a card with a vintage Chinese princess. This beautiful and intricate digistamp is by Aurora Wings, who has sponsored this week’s challenge at Creative Fingers.
The Chinese words read beautiful harmony and were red and silver so I coloured them in the same dark yellow used on her collar.
I coloured her face with Coral, Sunkissed Pink and Blush. Her cheeks are pastel pink.
This fortnight’s challenge is Creative Moments is sponsored by QKR. They produce the most wonderful sentiments for cards as well as digi stamps. I have teamed the sentiment with a fabulous free image from Jade Dragonne. The chosen backing papers match the tea and cake theme perfectly and I cut some elements form the papers to embellish the image. The swirl I used is fromSpellbinders and is called corner flourish two.
Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land
Song of Soloman 2:12
We have had some lovely mornings over the last few days – perhaps a sign that Spring is on its way. Today’s post is an Easter card made using Hunkydory stash. This is a new kit that came with ther last magazine.
Listen, my child, and be wise. Keep your mind on what is right. Don’t drink too much wine or eat too much food. Those who drink and eat too much become poor. They sleep too much and end up wearing rags
I thought I’d slip in a second sneaky post today, as I have been on 1/2 term this week and have managed a bit of extra crafting. I have mounted this Magnolia stamp on an embossed Kanban card blank and added a sentiment from a DoCrafts kit.
He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.
Several years ago I visited someone who had a picture with these words in their home. I always wanted one for my own family and when I recently saw these words on Pinterest, I made our own picture.
The poster was created in Serif Craft Artist and I used a digikit from Scrapper’s Delights to create the background. I used the transparency tool for the first time(!) to fade the rainbow out near the bottom. The faux stitching is part of the digikit too.
I shall enter this picture into the following challenges:
And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
Welcome to another post for Creative Fingers. This week’s challenge is anything but a card and I have made a gift bag using this delightful image from Art by Miran. I bought the kraft bag from The Hobby House and the butterfly papers were free with a magazine. I have used a new Spellbinders die called the butterfly tree and the sentiment was bought in the same set. The pink cord is upcycled from an old gift bag (I can’t bin them without removing the handles and trims) and one piece is used with the Hunkydory tag and the other is not fixed so that it could be tied to close the bag when filled.
I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.
This is a lovely Wee Stamps image. The card is made with a Hobby House card kit, the only part that was not in the kit is the little heart-shaped button. This will be an ideal thank you card for Granny after one of my son’s birthday.
