Here is my card for this week's Ocean's 11 Challenge which I hosted: to use a Scripture or Quote on your card.
I used my new Our Daily Bread Set "Sing to the Lord". I love this set! I stamped my image on Aquarello Watercolor Paper in Archival Jet Black, then watercolored with a combination of SU! Inks and Markers, plus a few Copics. The SU! colors are Baja Blue, Blue Bayou, Blush Blossom and Old Olive. The Copics are BG72, W1, W5, and E57. I had to just barely touch the paper with the Copics because Archival Ink will run with Copics, but it was fine since I used such a light touch and didn't go back and forth over the lines of the image. I stamped the image again and colored just the flowers so that I could paper piece them onto the first layer. I painted the birds and flowers with Shimmerz "Opal" after I was done watercoloring... LOVE Shimmerz! It adds the shimmer of Twinkling H2Os but is much more translucent so it does not hide your intricate coloring! Shimmerz can be found at the ODBD Store.
I used the Our Daily Bread Sketch Challenge#3 for this layout. I used Baja Breeze for my base, and designer paper from Memory Box Sweetbay and Butterfield packs. I stamped the sentiment, which is Ephesians 5:19 directly onto my dp. I used my Nestie Small Classic Ovals and Classic Scalloped Ovals to cut my ovals. I also sponged Baja Breeze onto the oval behind the bird. I attached all my layers, and popped the bird up on dimensionals, then added a second layer of flowers, slightly curling up the edges. I don't think it shows in the picture but I dry embossed a corner pattern in the upper right corner, using a light box, stylus and an unknown brass embossing template. In the lower left corner I added three Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest "Lily Pad".
On the inside I added a strip I punched with a Martha Stewart punch and another of the Dogwood clusters from the set. It also is painted with Shimmerz.
I wish the shimmer would show up in the photo... it never does and that is frustrating, but irl it is very shimmery.
I hope those of you in Ocean's 11 enjoy this challenge, and for all my visitors, I hope this card blesses your heart! Thanks for taking a peek at my blog! Have a blessed day!
