Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello Everyone and Happy Thursday.  We are having awesome weather for summer.  It is mostly sunny in the low 70s.  Today the Inspired Stamps DT could choose any of the stamps released in the past 3 months.  I chose Genesis 1:1 and paired it up with Hymn: Earth and Weather (the stars come from a set called Psalm 91: Protection).
I used water color paper (smooth side) and stamped all the stars with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink, then I stamped the moon and the earth with Ranger Archival black ink (this is a nice ink to use with water coloring).  I then started layering the colors.  I added mustard  seed to the stars to give more depth of color.  I painted around the stars with tumbled glass, broken china and stormy sky.  I painted the earth with salty ocean and added black soot around the edges of piece and around the edges of scripture piece.  I popped up the scripture piece with foam adhesive.  I matted the piece on black cardstock and then on a white card base.
I added glitter pen to the stars, I like how the piece turned out.  Let me know what you think.
Attention:  Inspired Stamps is having a one week contest
