Happy Wednesday!! It's time for a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week our focus verse is Matthew 5:6, Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Life requires us to attempt to do many things without knowing whether we will be successful or not. We try out for a choir, a part in a play, a spot on a team, apply to get a job or into a particular school, etc., and then have to wait to see if we will achieve what we desire. We have no guarantees of our success. However, this week's verse tells us that when we try to live a godly life (hunger and thirst after righteousness) the Lord will help us be successful (they shall be filled). So many people see God as this Being up in Heaven that either isn't concerned with our daily lives or is waiting to bop us on the head whenever we do something He doesn't like. They totally miss the blessing of Him being the loving Father that wants to help us. He wants us to succeed and if we'll do our part, He will help us live a godly life.
This week's card uses the 500th sketch from Mojo Monday. Julee, the owner of the site, announced that this would be the last sketch. I have used (and will continue) Mojo Monday sketches and will greatly miss them. I kept thinking that my vertical strips were just missing something. It wasn't until the card was completely assembled that I realized I should have matted the strips. Ah well....next time.
I let my papers do most of the talking on this card. A black glaze pen was used on the bird's beak and eye for a little subtle dimension. Wink of Stella was used on the bird as well for some shimmer. I'm not sure if you can see the shimmer in the picture above. The flower centers were embellished with bling.
The verse was popped up for dimension but will still allow for easy mailing. I did a small amount of interior decorating as well.
