Layers of Color 'Fruit of the Spirit' Blog Hop!

 Layers of Color Blog Hop – We’re an online boutique where stampers can find unique stamp products and be inspired by fresh out-of-the-box ideas.
   
Welcome to the

Layers of Color

"Fruit of the Spirit" Designer Blog Hop!

If you got here from Grace's Blog you are in the right place! If not, please start at Layers of Color blog.

Layers of Color is celebrating sponsoring 2Sketches4You this week!

We are featuring cards using their sketch and the Layers of Color Prize! Join the challenge at 2Sketches4You to be eligible to WIN THIS PRIZE: Fruitful Harvest art stamp set, Belle Brocade art stencil and Botanical Swirls art stencil!



The sketch is just fabulous and works so well with the LOC Art Stencils.  I stenciled the top with the Bella Brocade Art Stencil using Memento Cantaloupe ink.  The beautiful image is from the Fruitful Harvest art stamp set, stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo and colored the image with Copics.  Then I used a Versamarker (Versamark ink in pen form) and colored over the stamped/colored image and embossed it with Clear Embossing powder.  It really made the image pop as you can see:


Our Designer Blog Hop theme is, "Fruit of the Spirit".

For my design I wanted to focus on Faithfulness.  
Faithfulness describes a person who is trustworthy and will always stand up for God's way.  The Holy Spirit produces this fruit through the believer who is in union with Christ.  It is faith which makes it possible for one to be true to his promise and faithful to his task.  I certainly want to be faithful to my Lord and Savior most of all...and believe when I am everything else falls into place.  It is the J-O-Y principle: Jesus, others, and then yourself.

From here, hop to Linda's blog to see the inspiration she has for you! Be sure to visit each designer’s blog as there are GIVEAWAYS on each blog!! Simply leave a comment on my blog today and I will announce the random winner tomorrow of this stamp set:
