Clear Dollar Stamps: God Is Love

Happy Saturday!

Today was a productive day - finally finished staining our house - we only started at the beginning of August. Uugh. It has been a long process and about 5 Saturdays of hard labor.  I'm just not use to that - LOL.

I had some time to make some cards this evening.  I actually stamped this image about a month ago.  It was August's homebound ministry card.  The image is from Clear Dollar Stamps "Peace for the Journey".  When I saw this set I knew it would be perfect for the homebound ministry. 

This is really a simple card.  I used my watercolor crayons, which felt good considering I had not had them out in years.  I decided to experiment a little and filled my Ninja water brush with Potion #9.  

At the last Angel Company Seminar {June 2011} one of the guest speakers was from Tsukineko and she shared all sorts if techniques using their products.  The advantage of Potion #9 over water is that it doesn't wrinkle the paper believe it or not.  I didn't need to use watercolor paper; I used PTI white cardstock.  I had been meaning to try this technique for over a year and finally did - it worked really well. 

Inside, I used another Clear Dollar Stamp; I'm not sure it is still available though.  
The Lord your God in your midst, 
The Mighty One will save; 
He will rejoice over you with gladness
He will quiet you with His love
He will rejoice over you with singing. 
Zephaniah 3:17
