Createx Jeremiah

To get person for just a moment, my favorite Scripture verse is Jeremiah 20:11, so when I saw it at Verve I just had to have it. It arrived recently so I wanted to put it to good use. My younger sister is in the Army and getting ready to head to a hot spot overseas in or around April. She returned from a one year unaccompanied tour in S. Korea in May, so you can imagine how she and her family feel about another year long separation. She is the one that I thought of when I first started to think about making a card using this stamp.

The background is a TJ technique called Createx Creations that I have had sitting around for months now. I love the vibrant colors of this technique and since I wanted to use a royal purple for this card this background came to mind. Since the background is so dark I pulled out my So Saffron for the base and used my Color Coach to find Almost Amethyst. I used my new Label One Nesties for the two layers and a couple Sakura metallic gelly roll pens to color around the embossed outer portion of the layers. I used my Craft Elegant Eggplant and clear embossed the sentiment, then my Elegant Eggplant marker to make the dots on the So Saffron.

Stamps: Jeremiah 29:11 (Verve); Ink: Craft Elegant Eggplant, Elegant Eggplant marker, Sakura Metallic gelly roll pens; Paper: So Saffron, Glossy, Almost Amethyst; Accessories: Createx paint, clear EP, Labels One Nesties, CB.
