Amazing Grace

      Greetings on this Tuesday!!  Our Shining the Light challenge with Our Daily Bread Designs is Sponging or Stencils.  I chose sponging.

 Our Daily Bread Designs, Amazing Grace, Blushing Rose Collection, designer Linda Carson

     I used Sepia Versafine ink to stamp Amazing Grace on to the Blushing Rose Collection paper.  I torn the paper at random then used the same ink to sponge around the edges.  The background was distressed before sponging those edges also.  The hymn was placed on pop dots.
     You'll really want to see the beautiful inspirations from my design team sisters!
