I made a variety of Spellbinder flowers for this one with a sun punch for the centers and added a flourish and leaves from the Our Daily Bread Designs Fancy Foliage set.  The beautiful verse was stamped on a Vintage Label die and I traced the die in black to make a slightly bigger version to frame my verse.  The background was stamped with the wonderful new doily stamp from the Birthday Doily set in yellow and added some stitching along the side.

ODBDSLC212 - Sketch

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is a Sketch.  Join us here for all of the details.




I need a second masculine card this month, lots of summer birthdays, and this sketch really fit the bill. I heat embossed this wonderful ODBD sand dollar and water colored it in purple, the color of our living sand dollars here in the Northwest.  I created a watery panel for behind the sand dollar by spritzing water color paper with ink.  The horizontal panel was dry embossed and a twine knot was added for a nautical feel. Pennant dies from the ODBD Pennant Dies set were distressed and sponged for a border.

ODBD Stamps Used: Ocean Treasures
ODBD Dies Used: Pennant Dies


Other Supplies: Re-inkers, water pen, spritzer, twine, foam tape
