A quick sneak peek!

Happy-Retirement

Hello friends!  I have a quick sneak peek to share with you!  Tomorrow Our Daily Bread designs will be releasing four new sets, and this is just to give you a little taste of what's to come!  

I used Happy Retirement, stamping the image with Memento Ink and coloring with Copics.  The sentiments are stamped with Versafine Ink.  The DP is K&Co Sea Glass die cut mat, and the base is Martha Stewart.  I created an easel card using Spellbinders Labels 8.  I shaded the edges of each layer with a black marker, then THoltz Distress Ink in Black Soot.  The netting is a recycled apple bag.  To bring out the hammock I went over the brown stamped lines with a black Micron pen to pop it a bit. I added a few little shells as finishing touches.

Hope you like my project...and don't miss the blog hop tomorrow for plenty of chances to win just for hopping along!!!  See you then!
