Be Joyful...Tuesday Throwdown

Hello there inky friends!  Today is a JOYFUL day!  Yes indeed!  Today's a snow day for me and I'm enjoying my time off from school and decided to play along with a challenge.  I'm joining the fun over at the Tuesday Throwdown!  This week, they're featuring Joy Clair as the sponsor so I thought it would be fun to ink up a cute little stamp they shared with new friends at CHA.  I wasn't able to go this year but I was surprised to find the stamp in my most recent order.  It was a sweet treat as I wished I would have received one at CHA!!!  

It was fun creating this colorful bookmark.  I used the exclusive CHA stamp as well as a hint of the Wood Background on this tag.  To color the image and the background, I lightly washed some watercolor over the cardstock.  To finish the tag off, I added some sparkle washi, some twine and a little tassel.  

As Joy Clair has a foundation in faith-based stamps and inspirational sayings, I explored my bible to find the perfect verse to accompany my new bookmark.  I happened upon Proverbs 17:20-22.  It's the perfect verse for this stamp...and a little reminder to keep joy in your heart as it is some mighty fine medicine! 

I sketched up an image on my bible page, sketched over with my Micron fineliner pen then colored with watercolors.  To finish off the journaling, I added a bit of gloss and sparkle to the hearts.
