Frosted Designs - Be Bold!

The new challenge is up at Frosted Designs and the theme is
Use bold colors or bold patterns (or both) on your card, layout, or off the page project and share it with us at Frosted Designs!

I've used some very bold acrylic paint colors to create these Faith Cards out of playing cards.
 A layer of gesso goes on first, then acrylic paint, stamps and ink. A butterfly cut from a pretty napkin and then a key word taken from the bible verse that appears on the back of the card. 
Coat both sides with a nice layer of Mod Podge and you have a beautiful reminder of God's love to hand out.
Here are the backs:
I have had three wonderful terms as a designer with Frosted Designs and this is my final post with them. They have a bunch of talented new designers coming on board to inspire you. I plan on continuing to play along with them and hope you will too! Stay tuned for an announcement of a new team I've been invited to join!

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments!

These are just so beautiful. I love the colors and butterflies. What a wonderful way to use up old cards from incomplete decks.

I look forward to hearing about your new DT, but I am sad that you won't be on the FDT any longer. You were one of the reasons I tried out for FDT and was sad to hear you were leaving. But we won't lose touch, love visiting your blog! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

Theresa...Wow!! I'm new to you blog
but I will definitely be back! Your
ATC's are wonderful. The colors are
so bright and cheerful and I really like
how the word on the front ties in with
the verse on the back! Brilliant!
