The Design Team is helping to launch new Bible Journaling sets on the Ai blog today!
I made a trio of cards using the 5417 - Frameworks Sentiments Set, 5419 - Bible Icons Set 1 and 5420 - Frameworks Set 1. They started out as bookmarks, but I decided they would each look great on a card:
I started by cutting out my tags from Bristol Smooth Cardstock - the lantern card is using the Ai 5223 - Bookmark Die, the others are from my stash. I stamped the icons first, using a no-line watercolor method for the fruit, and typical Ai style for the other two. These are small images, so after stamping, I used my #1 paintbrush to carefully paint in all of the colours, adding layers and shades. I masked each of the images, then stamped the frames using Tombows for the twig wreath, die ink for the rectangle, and Versamark for the oval - which I then embossed with gold powder. I used Distress inks and blending brushes to add some soft background colour to each tag (my favourite is the rainbow!). Usine my Misti to help with positioning, I stamped each sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I cut out a second tag of each style to put behind each one - allowing them to pop a bit more, added some Baker's Twine and mounted them to the cards with 3D foam adhesive.
Here's a closeup to see the embossed gold frame:
