Clear Scraps - Be Still Card

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Clear Scraps!

This week I'm playing with a great chipboard piece.
It's called Pine Trees Chipboard Embellishments,
and you can find it HERE.

It comes in a set of two different trees, and I used one of them on my card.
I began by coloring the chipboard tree with Distress Oxide inks. 
I used Vintage Photo on the trunk, and Peeled Paint on the rest of the tree.


The background of the A2 card was misted with Dylusions London Blue.
Once it was dried, I adhered it to a dark brown card base.
I added the chipboard tree,
and then stamped the sentiment in place, using black ink.
The sentiment is from a Bible journaling set.

Whenever I work with trees, Psalm 46:10 comes to mind.
"Be still and know that I am God."
There's a mighty stillness in the forest, 
It always reminds me of the incredible peace that only God can give us! :o)


Finally, I did a little more inking around the tree,
and then gave a light misting of water over the whole card.
Here's a close-up look:


Clear Scraps has so many fabulous chipboard pieces!
They're wonderful for decorating a card front,
and there are so many options for coloring them.
Here's one final look at the finished card.

Spray: Dylusions - London Blue;
Inks: Distress Oxide - Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint,
