Today's card went to another blog friend, Shaz from Calligraphy Cards.
Some people I just know what I want to do for them and other's I really have to put my thinking cap on :) Shaz lives in Australia and she shares many pictures of the beauty around where she lives including the lovely beaches. I think that is the one thing I really miss about living in Michigan is the lakes, being by the waters edge is so calming to me.
Well back to the card, I just didn't know what to do for a water theme and so I went with another thing that she shares, and that is her love for God, she shares verses from the bible and she does lovely cards with verses on them. When I think of God's house, the church and that had me thinking of stained glass windows. I love the old churches with the ivy growing up them.
I started with a piece of transparency that I used alcohol inks to get the stained glass effect, and glued the window die cut to it and cut around it. A little inking on the ivy because the green looked a little to bright for me after all.
I inked the embossing folder to give the background a tan color.
