Hello everyone! Whew... I have been working on several challenges in one here today! This is for today's Color Challenge on SCS: Basic Gray, Bravo Burgandy, Summer Sun and neutrals), Betty's Stamping in Time Our Daily Bread designs challenge #2 ( Use Sing to the Lord and add texture and dimension), The MMSC39 sketch, Betty's FTTC Anniversary challenge (cut it out and pop it up), C4c21 (Pink), Our Creative Corner (Music), Your Next Stamp Challenge (Sparkles), and Practical Scrappers (Patterned Paper).... I think that's a record for me! LOL!
I do love this Our Daily Bread designs set... Sing to the Lord! It's been a favorite of mine for some time now! Of course, the new sets just released are quickly becoming new favorites. Scroll down one post for the blog hop using these sets for three chances to win gift certificates to ODBD!
Anyway... Betty's Stamping in Time challenge is to use Sing to the Lord and add texture and dimension. I stamped the image twice, using a combination of coloring techniques including watercoloring and Airbrushing. I cut out the flowers and popped some of them up for dimension. I painted them with Shimmerz to add sparkle. For the sentiment panel, I first stamped the ODBD Amazing Grace Hymn on marbled yellow cs in VersaMark, then lightly chalked that with gray chalk. Then I cut out the heart with a SB Heart Die, and over-stamped the sentiment in Bravo Burgandy. I hand drew a slightly larger heart on BB CS and then on Basic Gray. I distressed all the edges and layered them, cutting the gray in half and only showing a bit of gray on one side as a shadow effect. All layers are distressed with a T Holtz Distressing Tool.
My paper is a base of Bravo Burgandy, unknown yellow marbled cs, and the DP is Flair Designs Coming Up Roses. I added more dimension with a wired ribbon from Michaels and ZVA Creative Pearls. Although I really struggled with these colors, I am actually happy with the end result. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
When you think of God's Amazing Grace, does it not make you want to Sing and make Music in YOUR heart to the Lord?
