Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace - how sweet the sound!

Home decor art work created using New Testament Cricut cartridge, Songbird Cricut cartridge and Industrial Glow Imagine.  Photo frame is 8x10 inches. 

Cross is found on page 27 of the New Testament handbook (cut at 7.5 inches).  Colors for cross come from Industrial Glow Imagine cartridge. There are 3 drops of "blood" on the cross created using a red Viva Decor pen.

I've added a Brown Scapular that falls to either side of the cross.  Image on left is our Blessed Mother giving the brown scapular to St. Simon Stock.   Image on right reads "Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire.  Our Lady's Scapular Promise."   Read more about the Brown Scapular.

Background paper is from K&Company 'SW Spring Blossom Designer Paper Pad.'

The "Amazing Grace" text was cut from vinyl using the Songbird Cricut cartridge font (1.3 inches).   Vinyl is on outside of glass.

Also on outside of glass are 3 butterflies punched from Martha Stewart punch and using the reversed side of the same background paper.   Butterflies are highlighted using Liquid Pearls.
