Glory Art no 2 - Representative

The theme for the second Glory Art scripture challenge was Representative.  Patter challenged us to think of ourselves as God's representatives here on earth.   Do our lives bring honour to Him?  What areas do we need to work on, or what things do we need to let go?  As we open ourselves up to God's work in our hearts, as we spend time with Him in prayer and bible study, He will bring about a change in us, transforming us into His image.  So as we live our lives and go out as His representatives or ambassadors we really will reflect God's love to the people around us.

Here are my scripture cards:

These are such fun to make.  I sponged the backrounds with distress ink and flicked with water then added the stamping.  This one has the definitions - what an awesome thought it is that we are ambassadors for the Lord.

I kept this set simple but sometimes simple is just right:

For the last two I also laid a polka dot stencil over the sponged backrounds, sprayed with water and blotted.  I actually lost this card for several days.  I hunted high and low but it had mysteriously disappeared.  I had quite given up on finding it when it turned up stuck to the back of my art journal :)

Lastly I had to include the bible verse which speaks of us as ambassadors and I like to think that the little bird flying away from the bird table illustrates that :)

  1. Love the water speckles on your background and those are some great stamps! I like how you added your quotes too. Just lovely - a pleasure to look at!

  2. These cards a gorgeous - the colour just sings of the clarity in your message.

  3. They are all beautiful Susan! The stamps are gorgeous and the colours are so lovely . Love how the splashes of water really stand out. Wonderful scriptures too !

  4. Susan, these are absolutely gorgeous. Love the colors! I've never thought to stencil with water. I'll be trying that soon.

  5. These are beautiful. All of them. Queen Anne's Lace is by far my favorite weed. I have them in vases all over the house as long as they are blooming. And your seeds sure do represent the flower. So very pretty.

  6. I really love these blossoms - there's such movement in the seeds.
