Spring Colours Challenge

Hi, and welcome!

We've had beautiful spring-like weather for the past two days, but it still gets mighty cold at night........that's when my hand-made quilts come into  their own....lovely-snuggley!

This week, at Twist of Faith we have a colour challenge.....

and a scripture, or uplifting verse or positive words of healing, encouragement, or support

We are so happy to have From the Heart Stamps joining us with their sponsorship for you! You may remember them as Designed 2 Delight.   

So many delights are waiting in this lovely store!

I'm always on the look-out for images that I can use on masculine cards, so I was excited to be using the lovely LIGHTHOUSE image for my DT card this week........

I'm not fond of the sea, which is a bit of bind when I live on an island, lol.......I like to have a view that includes lots of green....trees, grass, bushes......but I can certainly appreciate the sheer beauty of an ocean.  Lighthouses are still to be seen, dotted along our shorelines, and one can't help but be impressed with not only their purpose, but also their symbolism.......a strong and powerful light that, if followed, will guide the traveller to a safe harbour.
In creating this little card, I started with a white card base and used a piece of DCWV lilac paper as the background (it looks lighter IRL).......the dotty paper layer was from  my scrap mountain.......

I used Promarkers to colour the lighthouse and the surrounding scenery, and dotted some red to represent spring flowers........isn't the frame a lovely touch.... quite a few of the images in the store have a cute frame around them....I like that!

This beautiful verse from Isaiah (and several others!) comes with the image......perfect for this card......

A circular sentiment (Craftwork Cards....I used a green marker around the edge)and a little decoration inside, and it's finished.......ta-daaaaa!  A simple card, but I like it, lol.

As usual, the rest of the Design Team have some lovely inspiration for your creation for this lovely challenge.......go see!
