follow your bliss

Hi my friends.  I guess I've been pretty silent this week.  Other than class projects, I haven't stamped all week until today.  When the inspiration challenge was posted on SCS, I checked the site and was pretty awed -- some very cool stained glass art.  However, I was in the midst of some much needed cleaning and wasn't sure I would find time to stamp.  I made a lot of progess on the cleaning, but decided to take a break and watch the Brewers baseball game, so while I was watching, I made a card. 

My inspiration came from the mosaic glass gallery - follow your bliss.  I knew that I could use my rays embossing folder to make the background.  I inked it with brilliant blue ink and then ran it through my cuttlebug with white card stock.  It gave me exactly the look I wanted. 

Then I stamped Lady of Grace (Stampington) on white with brilliant blue and die cut it with a big scallop oval nestabilities die (Spellbinders).  I sponged the edges and die cut a larger one for a back layer.  I added some blue gems and used dimensional tape to attach the image to the card.  Easy.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I value and appreciate your comments.

I love this monochromatic design! The rays embossed background was the perfect choice to showcase the lovely lady of grace! Great card :)
