On Eagles' Wings

I really stepped out of my comfort zone today to create this card for the sketch challenge on SCS.
I have had my brayer for years, but honestly it never sees any ink.

I created the first panel using soft sky, bayou blue and not quite navy, this is my first time trying to create a sky like this, and I think it turned out okay. This is also the first time my On Eagles' Wings from Our Daily Bread designs has seen ink.

The image panel was created only using soft sky, followed by the eagle stamped with palette ink in burnt umber and finished off with the sentiment in black ink.

You should see my hands.......LOL!! Very bruised looking.....ROTFLMBO!! Thank you so much for all your well wished and healing thoughts regarding my ruptured ear drum Actually today is so much better then yesterday, it still hurts but it is no longer that blinding pain.

It was so nice to hear all about how spring is coming along in your areas, it helps me to be hopeful that we may join the ranks of spring too.

Supplies: On Eagles' wings, our daily bread designs, soft sky, not quite navy, black and white cs, soft sky, bayou blue, not quite navy, pumpkin pie, summer sun, burnt umber and black ink, brads, sponges, circle punch, brayer.

What a beautiful card! This is my favorite church song, even had it sung at my weddidng. I have a question unrelated to this card. You made so many pretty cards with holiday harmony paper at Christmas. Before SU fixed the spelling problem did it affect very many sheets in 1 pack? I am buying some thru SCS and I want to know how many sheets were bad. Thanks!!!! michellemallett@comcast.net
