Be Still, My Soul

 
Be still, my soul. The Lord is on thy side, in every change, He faithful will remain.
What a beautiful saying to go along with a field of beautiful blooms.

The Craft's meow

The Craft's Meow Design Team Members are hosting a Flower Hop for the month of May. If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Julie Ranae's blog. Otherwise, you can start at the beginning at The Craft's Meow!

My card today features a sentiment from Beautiful Hymns and a series of stamped blooms from Beautiful Spring. I used the masking technique for the blooms, and chose to highlight only one bloom next to the sentiment with full color, the others just got an outline wash of light marker.

I do hope you enjoy hopping along today to see all the beautiful May Flowers. There is even a prize for one lucky commenter, chosen from a random comment on one of the design team member's hop post. A TCM stamp set of your choice! Please be sure to leave an original comment when you are hopping!

Thanks for stopping, and your next visit is to Lin Brandyberry's blog!

  5. First of all, I love the sentiment. I love how you stamped outlines of the flower in the background and used masking so you could color the flower in the foreground. Lovely work!
