Praise the name of the Lord!

It's challenge time again at the Eureka Challenge Blog! The theme this week is "anything goes;" so please show us your creativity, and get a chance to win free images from Eureka!

I absolutely love Eureka's scripture stamps! They're a large size, which is great when you want the scripture to be the dominant part of a card! Psalm 133:3 is a great encouragement that it is always time to praise the Lord! I chose this bookmark image as a great reminder of the beatiful world He created that we can thank him for!

I used colored pencils to color the bookmark image.  I rarely choose stamp images that need coloring because  I don't have a natural ability for it, and so it easy for me to ruin an image, and if I have to "ground" it or anything, I'm really lost!  But this image is not to large, and detailed enough (small spaces) so there is not a lot of guesswork or difficulty in achieving a "smooth" coloring job as there is when a large space is being filled in.  (Have I ever mentioned I got kicked out of a summer art class???)
