Esther's Beauty Framed - Psalm 90:17

Don't forget to sign up for the blog candy in the previous post...I've added a few surprises!

"And let the beauty of the Lord
Our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our
hands for us;
Yes, establish the work
of our hands."

Psalm 90:17

Is this not the perfect verse for stampers?

I was asked to frame this verse for gifts by our pastor's wife. It is one of the verses from the Beth Moore Bible study on Esther and she wanted it framed in these beautiful frames from Michael's to give to her leaders.

I couldn't find the verse anywhere, and since I wanted to emboss it, I had a stamp made at a local rubber stamp company. I wanted the swirl to have some texture, so I got some Stampendous swirl stickers in gold (same one in the blog candy!) and toned them down with Stazon Timber Brown ink. (both papers are the color in the first...that darn camera!)

So dear friends and new visitors, as you prepare for this season, "let the beauty of the Lord.....establish the work of your hands..." as you create beautiful things for those you love.

P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment for the blog candy Here.

My work was accepted for a juried art show! Since I didn't think it would be accepted, I am woefully unprepared!! I will try to post a few things as I'm able. Thanks for being patient.

Merry Christmas!!

Pin It!
