1 Corinthians 13


I bought this stamp ages ago. I think it might have been one of the first stamps I ever bought when I started stamping eight years ago. It's one of my favorite Bible verses, and was one of the readings at our wedding (the other was the Apache Wedding Prayer). I have to make four wedding cards in the span of the next few weeks, so I thought I'd dust this stamp off for one of them.

I colored the flowers with my Copic markers, and distressed the edges of the Cameo Coral layer by folding the edges back and forth a few times, then running a finger nail between the layers of paper that appear to separate them. I learned that trick at a stamp camp years ago, and like the look it gives.

Do you like it? C'mon, be honest...

Details:
Stamps: Baroque Motifs (Stampin' Up!), Canvas Background (SU!), Sentiment
Ink: Basic Black, Close to Cocoa

This si so beautiful---I x-titched this for a freind who was married & later divorced. It was alot of work, but yr. later, she still enjoys it. I *really* like your Apache Wedding Prayer--very powerful & mistifying! I'm from an area of Canada...no Apache sayings. I'd love to have this in a stamp...can you direct me to a seller? THX. for sharing! SUE
