The Lord Liveth...

It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  This week's verse takes us back to the book of Psalms.  "The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted."  Psalm 18:46  This verse is all about praising the Lord.  When you think of all the things He has done for us, He deserves our un-ending praise.  The psalmist mentions just two of the many, many reasons to praise the Lord.  He's our Rock.  When we feel like our lives are a snow globe that someone keeps turning upside down, it's good to know that He is steady and unchanging. He provides our salvation.  This one alone is reason to praise Him for all eternity - and I believe that those of us who have accepted His gift of salvation will be doing just that forever and forever.

I kept the card design simple to keep the focus on the verse.  The Scrapbook Blessings Club currently has emboss resist as their featured technique.  I really enjoy this technique and chose to use it to make a frame for this verse.  A solid color frame, 3 rhinestones and some white dots made with a gel pen complete the card.  The frame is popped up over the verse and solid color mat.  I used a copic marker to go around the inside edge of the frame.  The finished card is 3.75" x 5".

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Bazzill (purple)
Stamps:  WORDart by Karen (Psalm 18:46); Recollections (clear floral stamp set - I can't find a specific name)
Inks:  Distress Ink (Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar, Peacock Feathers), Versamark
Tools/Embellishments:  SU Crystal Clear Embossing Powder, Uniball Signo white gel pen, Copic (V09), Spellbinders (Petite Oval Small, Petite Scalloped Oval Large), rhinestones (The Paper Studio)
