ODBDSLC209 - Red, White & Blue

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is a color challenge of Red, White &  Blue.  Join us here for all of the details.

I decided to go patriotic this week, stamping the flag heart from the ODBD Heart & Soul stamp set after inking with distress markers to create my background, then dry embossing and distressing.  I layered the beautiful verse from Proverbs on Spellbinder dies and added a seam binding bow with a button tied with twine.

ODBD Stamps Used: Heart and Soul

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, embossing folder, seam binding ribbon, distress markers, button, twine

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
