Blue Floral Card

I am feeling "Blue" today! :D I used Fred's Flowers V1 edition A precoloured flowers. I added plenty of Stickles ( Waterfall on most of card and Lime Green on the leaves ) The verse ( computer generated) is one that just speaks to me at the moment :) I am feeling a tad overwhelmed and boy, this one gets you through ;)
The background is art pastels and versamark, I love it so much, I hope I can replicate what I did again LOL. The blue ink on the nestie frame is Broken China distress ink sweeped on, nestie used as a stencil. I can't believe how I lucked out on the matching!

I am posting the verse I used, and an alternate I made. Feel free to snag if you like. Just click on images to enlarge and save to your hard drive.

Digital GEEK TIP: I coloured the verse in Paint Shop Pro by adding a Flood-filled layer over top the text in my chosen colour with layer set to "Screen"; Photoshop, Artweaver & other similar programs should do the same thing. I am pretty sure you can change the colour in WORD and other word processing programs as well.

Big Hugs,

Hi Tracey!
This is beautiful! I always like to see scripture used as the encouraging!
Love how you did the background! Such a pretty blue too!
Glad you were able to find comfort for "life" in God's word...praying peace and joy over you!
take care
Blessings, Maria

So beautiful! You can get the outline on the words by setting your stroke to 3 or so in PSP and choosing the colors you want on your materials palette. I took some PSP lessons from Stepping Stones and it was really wonderful.

Ahhhhhhh.......thank you so much for this screen/layer geek tip. That is SOOOOOO much easier than using the magic wand to select the text, inverting, flooding!
