Be Brave Mixed Media Easel Card with The Runaway Gorguss Girl Stamp.

Thank you for joining me!
Take a look at this beautiful easel card I made with the Gorguss Girl Stamp The Runaway!
This stamp set is absolutely beautiful, and I wanted the image to look whimsical and fun.
I used Several supplies to achieve the end result, and I am quite happy with the soft and sweet colors that emerged from playing around with my Sennelier Watercolors, Prismacolor Pencils, and Ranger Distress inks. I used a mixture of all, and I love being surprised by how the inks and paints will blend and make their own story.


The front of the card has the image stamped and colored using Sennelier Watercolors, and Prismacolor Pencils on Mixed Media paper by Canson.
I also embossed the banner and hearts, added gold acrylic paint throughout as a highlight, and finished it with a few gems, a beautiful trim and red star. 


The inside has a beautiful frame that I stamped and embossed and also distressed with Ranger Distress inks. To add depth, I also colored in the lace portion with Prismacolor pencils, to match the background paper. The finishing bow adds a feminine touch. 

The Runaway Stamp set includes the images as you see above. It is a beautiful and versatile set!

The other sets also had elements I used in this card, such as the Washi stamp, and the Lace frame and the star.




I hope that you enjoy this and are inspired to use your stamps and supplies!! Be encouraged, be blessed, and be brave!!- Raquel

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
