Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope everyone has been having a great weekend! I know I have. I did not accomplish much but my dear hubby sure did!! Ever have one of those sent for and could not quite make it days....I did this weekend...but I must say I did a lot of relaxing.
Today is suppose to be rainy....after church would be a good nap and crafting day!!
Well...since it is Sunday, it is time for another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge. This week's challenge is hosted by the sweet, inspirational and talented PeggySue.
PeggySue chose the verse: Isaiah 64:6 KJV "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."
This is the miracle upon miracles of the entire Bible that although sinful by nature and so weak and temporary, that God sent His son to die for us and make us clean again in His eyes. What a gift.
To go with this verse, PeggySue has chosen this challenge:
Use distressing or sponge the edges of your project, any chosen technique to give it a vintage or distressed look.
For my creation I used the Sweet Pea set I won at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. I have had my eye on this set for what seems like forever and I could not wait to ink it up.
I used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge and incorporated the Timeless Tuesday challenge from Flourishes as well. The challenge there was to use chipboard. I created a chipboard frame by cutting cardboard to go behind my embossed frame giving it more dimension. The dp is too different designs of Pink Pirouette designer paper that I distressed and stamped over with a Stampin up flourish as well as the Sweet Pea. The image is watercolored.
What do you think? I can't wait to ink this image up again sometime!!
