Consider the Heavens

It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week our verses are from the book of Psalms. Psalms 8: 3,4 state, "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?" Have you ever visited a planetarium and seen the representation of the vastness of space, all the galaxies and millions of stars? Have you ever considered that the God that made all of that is the same one that loves and cares about you and what happens in your life? This is the same God that wants you to spend time with Him and tell Him all about your day. That just totally boggles my mind. Who am I that He should love and care about me? And you know....He loves you too and wants to have a relationship with you. You could just start the conversation with Him with, "Thanks for the beautiful sky you put above me."

This time I obviously focused on the stars part of our verse. I used some distress inks on watercolor paper to color a night sky. I spritzed it with watch and dabbed that off with a paper towel. I also spritzed it with shimmer spray to give a little sparkle. I used a retired MFT Peek-a-boo Stars die to cut rows of stars in my inked background and then backed it with glitter paper. A squre die cut window allows the focus to be on the verse. The verse cut-out was framed with blue glitter paper. The entire panel was matted on blue glitter paper and then adhered to a white card base.

Some stars cut from glitter paper using the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cats die set were scattered on the card front. Each one has a small rhinestone for some extra sparkle. Some star sequins topped with Star Dust Stickles finish it off. Many of the items used on my card this week are available at our fantastic sponsor Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by to visit today. I hope you will check out the rest of the design team projects at the Word Art Wednesday blog and also visit Simon Says Stamp for some great new products.

This is such a powerful verse! I have often stared up at the stars and been amazed that God who took such care to create our marvelous world would have the time or energy for little old me! Love how you focused on the stars in your card. They make the verse that much more powerful. Hugs!
