Viva La Verve January 2012 Sketches

On January 11th I posted the card for Verve's Challenge for Week 1 of January, 2012. It was called "Encouragement in Trouble." Here are samples for weeks 2 - 4 that I will put in my gallery on Splitcoast Stampers for the Verve challenge gallery there. Each week they give us a new sketch on Friday. All of the entries are due by the end of the four weeks.

Week 2 Sketch

I used the sketch to make a masculine card of encouragement. I love the way Verve has individual stamps of many different Bible verses. Psalm 46:1 has always meant a lot to me and it's a message I want to share with others, to lean on God's strength at those times. I recently needed a card for a guy who lost his mom and didn't have one ready, so that was my reminder to be ready!

This card is for Fashionable Stamping's Challenge to make it a "Guy Thing" and for Word Art Wednesday's Challenge.

Paper - Prima "Madeline", CTMH Desert Sand and Colonial White, Bazzil (dark brown)
Stamp - Verve Psalm 46:1
Ink - CTMH Black, Heavenly Blue, Chocolate
Other - Dark brown jute unknown, CTMH wooden buttons, Twilight waxy flax, Cricut Art Philosophy (white shape); Spellbinder's Nestability (oval)
