It's time for another great challenge over at the Word Art Wednesday challenge blog. This week we are focusing on 1 Chronicles 16:10, "Glory ye in his holy name; let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord." When I was reflecting on this verse, the second part of the verse is what really struck me. If we are truly seeking the Lord, our hearts will rejoice. When we consider His holiness and all He does for us, how could we not rejoice?? What a wonderful God we serve!!
As I was thinking of the verse and what image to use with it, I thought of how so often when we are rejoicing in the Lord, at least at our house, that involves singing or piano music. Kris at Imagine That!, one of our fantastic sponsors this week, has a Grand Piano image that I really like so I thought it would be a good choice to use. I chose to make an old favorite today....an easel card. It just seemed fitting so that the grand piano could have plenty of room. When the card folds flat, it's a standard A2 size. I used a black Copic to edge the image panel and a light gray Copic to provide some shading under the piano legs. The image panel is popped up using a piece of fun foam.
I gave the piano a good coat of Wink of Stella clear so that it would have some shimmer. I used a Fiskars border punch to set off the sentiment and a Spellbinders die cut to set off the image. Red pearls accent both of them.
