Destiny - Wall Art


 Hello Friends

I had a crafty day today It always makes me happy to get my stamps out and make a mess. I find it very therapeutic :)  I saw these wooden frames at A.C Moore last week and thought they would make great frames for my stamping projects. They were only $1 super inexpensive and today I got to play around with one.  I painted it black with acrylic paint and left it to dry while I stamped something for the insert.

 

I got out the newly Nov 2013 KOM I bought.  I love this kit it is called Strength and Dignity you can find it here on the Unity website. The reason I bought this set was because I LOVED this quote:

 "HARDSHIPS OFTEN PREPARE 
ORDINARY PEOPLE FOR AN 
EXTRAORDINARY DESTINY."
C.S Lewis

It is a quote that really speaks to my soul. I love all of the works of Lewis.  I find his writing inspirational. He is probably most known for the Chronicles of Narnia.  However, there are so many other books he wrote that are definitely worth a read. 

So back to my project. I stamped the quote using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped the butterfly from the same kit with the same ink. I then used my distress inks to create the colours on the butterfly. I used Tumbles Glass, Peacock Feathers and Stormy Sky. I blended them all together starting from light to dark from the bottom up. I glued the butterfly to the card.  Then I glued the card to the wooden frame. I replaced the twine with black ribbon and then hung it on my wall :) 


Thanks for Visiting :)
