Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless you, and keep you; The Lord make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

This is a card that came from a challenge issued by my carding group. It gave a grid of 9 different sections and said to pick 3 and produce a card.

I chose the middle grid which was lace on top, butterflies in the middle and red on the bottom. This is the result.

Often times such a challenge confounds my imagination, but this time I'm happy with the results!

The imagery is a window planter box with the flowers growing up and the bottom of the window is the lace above.

Local Adornments

Before taking a trip recently, Lis answered a question for me about alcohol inks. The answer included some time together at her house and she showed me, rather than told me, different applications. One of the papers we created were simply drops of the inks on a piece of Saran type wrap and a sponge dipped in them and streaked on the page. We made several different variations of the colors and inks mostly with photo paper. The card that is attached uses a striped piece using this method. The flower in the upper right corner is made from taking apart a small pine cone and the little flowers are dried from the sun and ripe for spreading their seeds. They are both part of the local Montana landscape. Ernie is a friend of a friend that received this card.
