Word Art Wednesday!!

Happy New Year and Happy new Challenge art Word Art Wednesday!!!
Today is challenge # 217 with lots of inspiration and gifts!! Simon Says Stamps will be one of our new sponsors this year offering a $25.00 Gift Certificate every month!!  How awesome is that??  For all the details, a devotion and a digital scripture ( Win, Win, Win!!)  Head over to the blog!!!


I have  a great tip for those of you who make digital and hybrid cards like I do too!!

Here is today's verse:



Here is my card:

And here is my tip:


When I printed this beautiful ballerina, I printed her on 140# water color paper on standard print.  I should have used photo print setting.  The image came with those tell tale printer lines running horizontally across the image.  You that  do digitals know what I am talking about.  This image used a lot of ink and I did not really want to reprint it.   So I thought what can I use to mix out those lines?  I thought well the T H distress inks have some pretty amazing properties in them , I have no idea what they are but it never quite acts like any other ink, so I'll give it a try!  I used two colors, old paper and vintage photo, I just gently rubbed in the inks and Voila`  the lines literally disappeared, the ink did not just add another layer, it blended with the printer ink!  How cool is that!!

I hope you will enter in the challenge at WAW, a $25.00 prize is pretty nice!!
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

  4. Great image, Degas, perhaps not. Wonderful blessing sis isn't it when the Lord saves the day for us like that with flashes of brilliance. God is good, all the time. :)

  6. Oh wow! I thought this was absolutely stunning when I saw it over at Word Art Wednesday but I am so glad I came over here to read all about it! That is super cool that the distress inks worked with the printer ink. It looks completely amazing! Stunning!
