It's TeaPotter swap time! Can you believe it's the end of September? Our hostess this month has issued us a challenge to be inspired by bees or yellow and black. Thanks Jen, not only for the prompt, but also for being a teacher and nurturing students.
I took the literal way as I so often do! I love transferring words into art with inks, stamps, and fiddly bits. My card is base on the scripture from Proverbs 16:24.
"Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and Health to the bones."
This is a collage card. It began with picking the Basic Grey 'Urban Couture' DP. I added the honeycomb stencil, both the negative and positive to the corner edges. I used TH DO 'Walnut Stain' spray. After it was dry, I used the embossing folder to give more texture. The PSX honeycomb image was fussy cut. I used the Making Memories tiny type letters to stamp Pleasant Words and the. Sweet was captured from a Sweetheart stamp that I masked. And the Soul is part of a larger image from Limited Edition. A vintage Dynamo Label maker with sky blue tape added a bit of color and gave me the words 'as/a' and the number 2. Tiny staples. A vintage German scrap corner that I embossed with a glitter/mixed media powder in sky blue. Washi tape in random places completed my card.
I love that scripture. I am reminded how powerful our words are. And perhaps their worth is far more than any money.
Thank you for adding to these thoughts...I appreciate them with all my heart.
