Psalm 91:1-2

Today's card is a project for Joan's Touch. We needed to make something with a stencil, two patterns of paper and at least one item that can be purchased at Joan's Gardens. Items in blue may be purchased there.

I only have one stencil, and that is Spellbinders Butterfly; I mixed up some homemade paste using white paint, talcum powder and glue, then put the stencil down on white paper and applied the paste. The first one I made was too thick and it was discarded. This second one was thinner and a better fit for this project. When you do this, make sure that the paste is completely dry before continuing. This piece was placed on a blue on blue polka dot paper and adhered to white cardstock. The lovely sentiment that you see is from Word Art Wednesday, which was featured some time ago last year. It was printed out and then cut with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and backed with a blue oval cut out. Next, two butterflies were punched out with a Stampin' Up punch from the same blue polka dot backing paper plus another blue textured paper. They have Viva Perle Pen Liquid Pearls on their bodies. (Can't seem to help myself when it comes to using liquid pearls!) A blue ribbon and bow are run across the bottom of the card.

Here it is:

And the lovely sentiment from Word Art Wednesday:

Here is a couple of close up shots of the textured stenciling:

Romans 10:9-11

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
