DRAGGED MADRAS - JESUS IS MY PORTION...


Hello! I have discovered a new forum and I am so excited because they asked me to be a host for one of the weekly challenges. Have you heard of the Christian Paper Crafts Community? They are working on a new forum but it is currently in the NING community. I just love this community. What better place than to have a community of friends who love the LORD and share a passion of paper crafting!? Praise GOD! If you have not heard of this and would like to join, let me know and I will send you an invitation.
Every Tuesday, Christian Paper Crafts will hold a Tuesday Sketch. This is their sketch for this past week, CPCM-ST01 is the code for any forums you will use if you participate!

In addition to doing the sketch challenge, I used the technique Dragged Madras. This is a technique that was shared in the May Technique Junkies newsletter. I am still ecstatic about being a part of their Design Team! This week, my stamping time seems to be minimal due to Spring School activities.

Here are the details on this project:

Stamp Sets: His Eye is On the Sparrow and Dream Silhouettes by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Ink and Cardstock: Barely Banana, Basic Black, Whisper White, Bashful Blue (Certainly Celery Ink too)

Accessories: Big Shot Top Note Die, the frame for the words I drew myself and cut that out by hand, Dew Drops, Sponge Daubers, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Snips

Today is another busy day! I have MOPS this morning and then my 7 year old has a Tae Kwon Do activity, then I have to do some work in my basement for two hours. Can someone come over and give me a few hours of quiet time in my stamp room, please? LOL

I hope you all have a blessed day!

this is a very pretty card and a cool looking technique. I don't do techniques much any more simply because I am a slow card maker and then they take me longer. I may have to try this one though.
