Today's card is also inspired by a Viva la Verve Sketch. This sketch was designed by Verve Diva Teresa.
I feel that I must warn you and tell you that I have gone in a totally different direction for this card. I got 'grungy'. Lots of distressed edges and direct to paper inked background base.
The inspiration for this idea came from this week's Bible Verse Thursday challenge 104 @ Christian Paper Crafts:Wilderness.
Sometimes our trials in this life make us feel as if we are living in the wilderness. With that thought in mind I created this distressed, roughed-up, grunged card as a symbolism of wilderness and I including a scripture on the front that encourages me when I feel like I am walking in life's wilderness.
I don't know if I like it or if it even works but, I spent my precious time on it so here it is...
All the patterned papers on here are from K & Co. Also from K&Co. is a translucent frame, journaling tag (sentiment is stamped on), sunflower border, and two little daisy accents that are popped up with pop-dots but, it's hard to tell that in the photo. I took a Very Vanilla cardstock base and used a Tim Holtz distress ink in Fired Brick along with the direct-to-paper inking technique to create the base of the card. The scripture stamp is from Sweet n Sassy stamps. It's very different from what I normally do and I think it could be better but, it could take a while to master the grunge style!
Thanks for looking!
