Sing to Him


 I started this card with a cereal box.


I covered the back of the cereal box with distress inks.


I put school glue over the top. 

.

I spread the glue out.


I put drops of white and gold paint over the glue.


I used my fingers to spread the paint drops over the glue.


How my cereal box looked when the glue and paint dried, My faux barn board background only needed gold embossing powder and music notes to make the perfect backdrop for my card.




My card has lace, burlap, cheesecloth, brads, and encyclopedia die cut letters spelling "SING". It has fussy cut cone flowers and a butterfly.  This verse from 1 Chronicles 16:9 was the perfect match for this card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
