Artist Trading Card / Faith Art

(artist trading card 2.5" x 3.5")

Good morning paper crafters.  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day and are not too stuffed.  We had a wonderful day and I had fun trying some new recipes this year.  Today I will be relaxing and putting up some christmas decorations.  No black friday shopping for me.  I don't like crowds and univited people in my personal space.  Thus I avoid fairs, concerts, and Walmart for the entire month of december, teehee.

Today I am doing the Faith Art Friday post over on the Layers of Color blog.  I hope that you will check it out every friday.  Here's my post :

"Isn’t it wonderful how we can see and experience God all around us!  The last few months  have been heartbreaking for me because someone who is dear to me, and had been a follower of Christ, shared that he no longer believed there was a God.   This person is very scientific and believes that there is no evidence that there is a God and that He created this wonderful world that we live in.  I was deeply saddened knowing the consequences of our unbelief.  It’s difficult for me to understand how some people can NOT see the evidence, it’s all around us. 
The whole earth is full of His glory!  Isaiah 6:3

I am so thankful that I can see, and for all the beauty that God surrounds us with.  I am so thankful for a loving God who gave so much for me that I might have eternal life.  It’s a free gift to anyone who wants to receive it, to anyone who can see the evidence of God all around them"
If you would like to know more about what I am talking about, just email me at

Hugs, Melisa


Project Details
Stamps : Touch of Elegance, and Dotted Peonies art stamp sets.
Copic Markers : RV10, RV34, RV19, YG61, G21, G24
Spellbinders : Nestibilities Labels Two and the Grand Calibur

The background was created using the circular image from the "Touch of Elegance" art stamp set. It's difficult to see. But I stamped the image with VersaMark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder on 140# cold press water color paper. This works as a resist. Next I rub the orange paint over the entire card, let is set for a minute and then used a damp paper towel to rub some of the paint off, exposing the embossed images. It gives you this cool distressed look. Next I rubbed hot pink paint around the edges to distress it even more. 

Gotta share!!!  I'm so excited ...  I just figured out how to find the code for the font color I want online and then change it in the HTML here!!!  Whoowhoo!  I like to make my links a different color but I want it to match my art.  I have no idea why Blogger doesn't offer more colors for us computer illiterit folks.  My children will be so proud of me.
