Sneak Peek... Steadfast and Sure!


Hello everyone! I made this for several challenges, using today's sketch on SCS. It is a sneak peek at a wonderful set to be released by Our Daily Bread designs on Feb. 1! It's great for guy cards and easy to color up quickly. I colored my image with Copics and the sentiment is stamped on Gina K with a light stamping in VersaMark of ODBD's very first set, Light of the World behind it. I sponged the edges with Adirondack Latte. The base is SU! Soft Suede and the dp is my hoarded Blue Awning by K&Co. The charm was a gift from a sweet friend, America. It's perfect for this card!
