Watercolor Scripture Tag / Door Hanger

There's a fun challenge going on over at the Tombow Blog called, "Words of Wisdom".
The directive is to work words of wisdom into your craft project.  I can't think of a better wisdom quote than scripture, direct from the Bible.  Also, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog has a challenge to link up with your favorite technique, which is watercoloring.  Also, there is a challenge at Inspiration Destination, Anything Goes #38.  I will be sharing this project at all 3 challenges.  I do have some affiliate links below, as well, if you care to shop for any of the items I've used below.

 For my project, I chose to heat emboss this scripture verse from the Unity Stamp Company and use my Tombow Dual Brush pens to watercolor and "smoosh" my paper into watered ink.  The name of this stamp is, "My Strength My Song, Lord".  

(Those fun little bubbly gems?  Those are skittles embellishments.  Be sure and scroll to the end of this post if you'd like to purchase some of your own.  I LOVE them!  So many fun colors.....)

After smooshing my watercolor embossed image, I touched it up with some additional coloring.  I also used a cloud stamp on the edges.  The sentiment was cut with

from: Simon Says Stamp

 I placed it on a larger hand cut tag that I made from Adornit blender paper, distressed with Bo Bunny Pearlescent, stenciling, ink splatters and additional touches of color from my Powder Puff purple chalk ink.

The gorgeous ribbon handle was made with May Arts Ribbons including this new release Spring Floral Print and white mini pom poms.  I thought this would be sweet to hang on a door knob, or  car mirror, hang as a decorative accent on a gift bag or just give to a friend to perk up their day.

Here's a close up.  I had a little trouble getting good photos in my homemade light box, outdoors, while the wind was blowing!  Haha, always a challenge when taking pictures outside.  The wind kept knocking over my tag.  But, the results are well worth it.
