Navy and Brown DO go together!

I cannot tell you how many times I have told my DH that you CANNOT wear brown with navy, especially brown shoes with navy pants. (no, no, no!!!!!) But, it seems to work well on this card.

I just love this image from Our Daily Bread Designs (can you tell? hehehe) It conveys a feeling of peace, and yet also a feeling of strength when I look at it. I used Night of Navy and Close to Cocoa CS from SU and some more of that Amazing Grace DP from Flair Designs. I printed out the sentiment, which is a portion of Psalm 27:1, on off-white CS, layered with colored CS and attached loops of ribbon and a brad. I left the inside plain with lots of white space for writing.

I used my Copics to color the image. This time, I colored in the sky first, then added the rays of light from the lighthouse. I like the way it turned out better than the last time.

I wanted to try something different with the embellies and so I used a cream satin ribbon and a corsage pin that I threaded beads onto. The last bead is glued over the point of the pin. (Do you know that pin is left over from my wedding 9 years ago?)

The flower is a silk stem that I took apart and the brads are Basic Grey Urban Prairie. (Yes, I use them A LOT!)

Overall I am very pleased with this card. I had no idea where it was going when I started but I like the finished product.

Lovely and beautiful...I think I want to try them, but I'm a little unsure. Where do you get your copics.
