Trust


I am at the end of my five day ODBD week and I have one more project to show you!

I used images from the new release Mother Teresa and my three ODBD ink pads for this project as well: Spring Green, Sunflower and Raspberry.

I stamped my lotus flower with VersaFine Onyx Black and then watercolored using an Aqua-Flo brush.

I love the Wild Raspberry paper from K & Co. It goes so well with these colors and images. I added Angel Wings Shimmerz to the middle of the flower and on the water. Here is a close-up that shows that (click for an ever closer view!). Shimmerz is 25% off through tomorrow!


The quote says "I know that God will not give me anything I can't handle; I just wish that He didn't trust me so much." This Mother Teresa quote is probably my favorite in the whole set -- it just seems to fit life right now for a lot of people! I think it also shows Mother Teresa's sense of humor - and we certainly need a lot of humor to get through a lot of life's bumps and hills and obstacles!

The frame around the lotus was actually a mistake! I was cutting out the frame with my Nestabilities and it didn't quite cut. I couldn't re-do it, as the paper came out of the metal frame. So it is what it is, and I ended up liking it embossed!


Thanks for sharing this release week with me! I hope you will join in the Guest Designer contest that ODBD is having this week! You can read about that HERE!

Thanks for coming by!

Gorgeous Judy! Great framing, I was wondering how you did that..

Traci M said...

I was just admiring your embossed frame and thinking I need to remember to try that when reading it was a "mistake." What would stamping be without them?
This is so true about life and the challenges we face, Judy...I really love your card today and your accompanying words of encouragement. This is a truly lovely set!!

Love this card and the "frame" around the flower doesn't look like a mistake to me. It really adds a cool touch to this card. Sometimes, God gives us what we think look like mistakes to let us see a new perspective.
