June Card!

This is my latest creation for me and my sister's card swap. She picked the subject of a scripture. Our cards could be based on any scripture in the Bible. I went with an ocean themed one. The picture came from a brochure that we got last year at our District Convention all about creation. It is a beautiful and informative brochure and has inspired a lot of creative ideas too!! Enjoy!

Making an image into a card..

Just quickly posting how I made this image of my niece, Hayley, into a card. I first changed the image into black and white. Then I used a program I have to change it to a coloring book image. Sometimes you have to manipulate it a bit to get it to work right (mostly lighten it). I then cropped and added some wild animal images to it in place of her dog, Miley. (Trust me.. she was NOT happy about that!!). I wanted to "place" her in the new world that Jehovah God promises us. I added the scripture and printed it out. Here is the resulting image and the card I made for my family with it. It was a really fun process and I have learned much more about doing it since then. I hope to make many more in the future. Enjoy!!
