Faithbook 4: You’re a Princess!

 

This is the fourth of my Faithbook Series of posts – this month I’m making cards. And also starting something new, an Inspiration Takeoff! Over HERE I invited folks to send in cards to inspire one of my videos, and Sabrina’s is the one I chose from September’s cards. Thanks to everyone who’s been sending them in!

Watercolor on Canvas

When I saw Sabrina’s card, I knew the design and the ombré would allow me to  try out the watercolor canvas pad I bought recently – I had it sitting here for 2 months, waiting for a chance to play! And the stamp from Taylored Expressions was going to fit perfectly on the 3-1/4 x 4-1/4 rectangle too. I think every young girl needs to hear the words on this stamp! And gold? Did I say gold? LOL! Used some of the items from class here too! (if you missed the free online class, click HERE!) Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

The promised color combinations are listed in the supplies below…the first one mimics the inspiration card;

The blues and bright pink will be the color scheme for my bedroom makeover to come….hoping to get started on that soon!

And I wanted to compare three purple distress inks to see if I loved Wilted Violet as much as I thought. And yes! It’s the best purple yet, thank you Tim!Sandy Allnock Faithbook4 Purple

Want to share a card of your own?

Send *one* thank you card (any visual theme), include a post-it with your name and social links. Don’t write inside it – and add a liner if it’s on dark cardstock. Cards should be received by Oct 31; stay tuned for December’s theme to be announced soon.

  4. Oh, Sandy, I love this card and more particularly,l I love the sentiment. I reiterate that statement to young women every chance I get and my grandchildren hear it all the time. Princes and Princesses. I used to feel sad that I did not understand this message for myself when I was younger and I know it now and that is enough. Blessings to our continued success in charming us with art.

  5. Love this technique and the cards you did. TFS God Bless You, too, Sandy.

  6. I love this series. And I am crazy about that stamp. I have two little girls and I have sisters and a niece, so this stamp is a great inspiration for the girls and women in my life. I don’t impulse buy very often at all but I had to have this stamp when I saw it on your Instagram. Keep up the good work Sandy!
