Showers of Blessing - HIMCR #182

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Here it is the 2nd Saturday of the month
and you know what that means, don't you?

That's right . . . not only is it time for a new challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room, but it's time for "Super Scraps Saturday" challenge.  

Our sponsor this week is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
The giveaway is 3 digitals images from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

So let's get out our scraps and get to craftin'!!!

For this week's challenge, I used "Let It Rain" by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. But instead of using the main image at the focal point, I made it into a background pattern/paper and I used the verse "There shall be showers of blessing.Eekiel 34-26b as the focal point of my card. Here's how it turned out:

misc. orange scraps
misc. cream paper (to put behind the vellum)
Flowers from Prima

As you can see, the girl with umbrella is used multiple times and are different colors.  I did this by by inserting it into a MSWord document, then copying/pasting it multiple times and changing the color using five (5) different colors. I then printed it onto vellum, trimmed to size I wanted and put the card together.  I also changed the color of the verse to a green by inserting into a MSWord document and changing the "picture" color. Pretty simple, right?  I guess, if you are unfamiliar with MSWord and pictures, it may not be simple . . . so if you have questions, PLEASE ask because what may make sense to me, may not to others.

Remember, you have one week (till Jan. 17th 2am PST) to get your scrappy projects in so you can be eligible for the weekly prize. And what a GREAT way to use up some of your scraps supply. :)

Till the next time I'm up in the night.

Just so beautiful. Love the repetitive image in the background the flowers is a lovely touch.
