God is Bigger

Hello and Welcome to Day 4 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
 January New Release Blog Hop!

Today we are featuring a great sentiment set, full of encouraging words, God is Bigger.  

I started with a flourish image from the new Leafy Flourish Background and More set; I stamped it 6 times in a circular fashion, using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I then stamped it 6 more times, moving further out to make a larger circle using Lucky Limeade ink to create a wreath.  The panel was then embossed with a polka dot ef and spritzed with a bit of Wisteria Wonder ink.  I used a small snowflake die and cut out a Lucky Limeade snowflake, which I used as a center for the wreath and base for a butterfly.
 
I stamped a Majestic Monarch and colored the image with Copics; I went back in to add detail with Prismacolor Pencils.  The butterfly was die cut out and adhered to the wreath with a dimensional.  I backed this panel with a doily and a dsp mat.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment to a white background mat, adhered the image panel and added a black seam binding bow and a rhinestone to the butterfly.  

The details~
  • Clear stamp set includes 24 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
