Have you ever seen an image that just SPEAKS to you?
One that takes your breath away and brings tears to your eyes?
If you have, you know how I felt when I saw this image:As soon as I saw "Forgiven", I just knew that image had been drawn for me!
Typically, I would not call myself a "religious" person, and I have my own kind of relationship with God. I don't technically participate in any "organized" religions and it's been awhile since I've been to Church. I was baptized Roman Catholic and have gone thru all the "Sacraments": First Communion, Confirmation, Marriage, etc. and I attended Catholic schools my whole life... but I also think that many Churches have fallen prey to greed and fear-mongering, which does not appeal to me in any way.
But this image, and it's message, prompted a quick and intense reaction in me. Heather has released an entire new set of Religious/Easter images that are sure to touch you to the soul!
As soon as I received it in my inbox, I got to work!
I made the sunburst background with Inkscape, created the cross in SCAL and that's it! I "painted" the nails with Mod Podge" just to give them a little gloss.
The message, to me, is very clean and simple. Can you hear it?
I would like to share this card with the Crazy 4 Challenges sketch challenge this week.
I adopted a very clean and simple variation of their sketch!
