All creatrues, great and small... the Lord God made them all!


Hello everyone! It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD26)! The assignment is Our Daily Bread Design stamps. Sarah Nelson is our challenge hostess this rotation. Sarah Nelson is challenging us to "All Creatures Great and Small!" All creatures great and small work for this challenge. So, without too much direction, we want you to interpret it the way you want. We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!

For my card, I used the ODBD set Noah's Ark. I stamped with Archival Sepia Ink and colored with Prisma Pencils and Odor Free Mineral Spirits. The base is Papertrey Dark Chocolate. The designer paper is The Paper Studio Mirabella Collection. I used Spellbinders Scalloped Edge Frame and Fancy Tags, and a MS edge punch for the lower green edge. I used TH Distress Ink in Pumice Stone to sponge around the image. I added some "white caps" to my water with a Galaxy Broad Point Marker in Milky White. The pearls are Recollections. Card is 5.5" square.

We can't wait to see your submissions! Check out the Our Daily Bread designs Blog for all the details of the challenge and prize, and to link your card to the post! When uploading to on line galleries please be sure to use the key word SNTODBD26!

Hi Grace!
What a super card. I love the image and it is so appropriate for my State of Queensland in Australia.
Three quarters of the whole state is under water through floods. Such a devastation.

I LOVE this card. My son's nursery was done in Noah's Ark theme, and everytime I see anything related to that part of the Bible, I think of that.

This is so beautifully done, Grace! I love the look of the water...and the coloring of each animal...especially the lions! You colored the wood so beautifully. I love the bg papers. I especially appreciate the little piece of brown (I think) on the very looks like another wave...very clever! I love the piece of red-sienna colored trim directly around the ark and the vanilla paper. Is that a SpellBinders? Or is it ribbon? I love that piece!

The whole card is wonderful, Grace.
Have a blessed weekend!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
Give-away ends at midnight. Please, stop by, Grace!
