Footprints...

Just wishing you a Happy Easter Saturday, here is my offering today. Its a wall hanging for my Mum.
 I had to get the frame from Delicious Doodles, I love peacock butterflies so that was a must and then with Foxgloves which always make me think of Summer (old wives tale and it works for me, Summer will last as long as the Foxglove has flowers on in the garden when the last one goes then Summer is over)
 So I coloured them  with alcohol ink pens, I  used mostly Pro-Markers with the odd Graph it and I think Spectrum Noirs.
 I then cut out the middle leaving the frame and mounted it on 4mm 3D pads from Stix. 
The verse is the Footprint in the sand stamp from Our Daily Bread designs, not from the Bible but has kept me going in my deepest darkest moments and through life I have had a few, knowing or at least believing that you are never alone and there is someone to carry when you need them the most has got me through.
 The verse was then slightly coloured with distress inks.
 I then mounted it on black and lilac card from Stampin Up and plaited some ribbon to make wall hanger.
Many thanks for visiting, please let me know you have been
 hugs Tania xx

I love the idea of a custom frame for this. And you've colored it so beautifully. I have always found this to be my most comforting and inspirational verse too.

I really like how you used the saying for the center and then just added the flowers on the side and butterfly in the corner for decoration. I think it turned out beautifully! Thank you for playing with us at Crafty ribbons! Hugs! xx
