Ask, Seek, Knock Flowery Columns
There were too many fun challenges this week both on Splitcoast and Christian Papercrafts Magazine.....there were three that fit together for this project perfectly. First, Dawn's sketch challenge had me stumped for a few days, until Julia's Ways To Use It Challenge was to create something from stamps, die-cuts, etc other than what the items were originally intended for. I knew then that I had to make columns! And thirdly, Chrissy's New To You Wednesday Challenge over at CPCM was to try the grid technique...this was a real challenge, since I don't have a scor-pal or boning tool. (I use my Fiskars paper cutter and a Pampered Chef pan scraper to do my scoring!!!) Anyhoo....after scoring criss-cross lines across a 3" x 5" pc of Whisper White, I cut the three columns at 1 inch. I cut and embossed three times with the Labels 4 Spellbinder die, cut each in half long ways to make the top and bottom caps of each column, and sponged all of the pieces with Sahara Sand. The background scene was sponged with Sahara Sand, Old Olive, and Bashful Blue. The sentiment tag was also cut with Labels 4, stamped with one of the verses from "Ask, Seek, Knock", a new release from Our Daily Bread Designs. Finished everything off with Hero Arts pearls and Flower Soft.
Thanks for stopping by! We're leaving in a few wee hours for vacation, so see you next week!!! God Bless!
