I've long wanted to use this kind of layout, and this was the perfect use of it. I printed out the digital image to allow for flowers above and below the verse, and I drew a light pencil line above and below the sentiment and masked the verse. I made my floral masks using stickie notes (both of the large and small flowers). I stamped the larger one first, masked it, and then stamped the two side flowers. Next I stamped the leaves in Pear Tart Memento ink...and repeated for the bottom portion. I colored my flowers, and since the leaves are nearly solid, I outlined them with a multi-liner pen and colored them with a Copic marker (I need more Memento green inks). Then I finally used a multi-liner pen to draw the lines above and below the Scripture verse. Once done, I used a pierced die and matted it (I used the chisel end of a Copic marker to color a piece of card stock large enough to mat using my Mini Perfect Layers...and now it matches my flowers perfectly). Lastly, I added some sequins (these little guys are finally starting to get used - hehe!).
Thank you taking a closer look, and I hope you have a wonderful week! Sending you all big hugs, sweet friends!

This is breathtakingly beautiful, Cheryl!! The flowers are so stunning with your coloring, and they shine and look so real! To me, the verse is magnificent as are all Bible verses. I've said it before, but I'll say it again, Cheryl, you are such an awesome artist! Hugs, my sweet sister!! You're still in my prayers!
