Word Art Wednesday Guest Designer

Welcome and Happy New Year!  I'm so excited to be participating in the Word Art Wednesday blog as the January guest designer.  I love a lot of things about this challenge blog, but what I love the most is how uplifting all of the cards and people are.  You just can't go wrong sharing God's word.

Here is my card for the first challenge of the New Year.  This scripture really hint home with me.  I finished my first round of the Armor of God bible study (I say first round because it was so good and deep that I am doing it again on my own starting today!).  Such a fantastic study that really challenges and teaches how to put on the armor of God and how to let Him work through you and right the battles on your behalf.  It is worth checking out if you haven't already.
Now onto the card.  One of my craft resolutions this year is to use the things that I have already.  I have had the Papertrey Ink Mountain Majesty Cover Plate for far too long and today is was the day.  I busted out the water colors and got to work on the background and the cover plate die cut.  I don't typically use computer printed images, so this was another element of the challenge for me this week.  I printed it out and then die cut the sentiment from the same die.  It isn't perfectly centered, but I am so happy with the end results.

Because I needed to print out the sentiment, I couldn't use my watercolor paper for the background or die cut.  It worked, but I do want to try it again with watercolor paper to see what results I get.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a fantastic day!

It's a good life!
Terri E.
