Scripture Challenge - Cover Page

I got the cover page for my Scripture challenge album done last night...



For the title part, I used rub-ons at first, but I was SO unhappy with how they looked, so I took some Tim Holtz ink (Tea Dye) and inked all over the paper to blend them into the background for a better look. Well, I loved the color it made the paper but was still unhappy with the rub-ons. I tried taking them off with some tape (a very handy trick if you ever need to remove some), but they were reallllly stuck, so I decided to make a title block to cover them. It worked great!

I added a butterfly that I cut out of a piece of patterned paper and attached it with some pop-dots. I drew a flight path from the flower, sewed over it with some brown thread and then also used the same thread to attach the title block...

So, when I started, I never expected this page to look how it does, but I really love it!! How funny is that? :)
