This is my second post for today, but I'm so very excited to share my first official design as a member of Our Daily Bread's Design team with you! My design today features July's brand new set "Grow in Grace." The fun begins with a challenge issued to us to use only three ODBD ink pads to provide the color for our card. My colors are: Sunflower, Olive, and Terra Cotta. More about these fabulous ink pads further down!
I began with a coral colored cardstock, scoring the folded edge with my Scor-Pal. I added a touch of texture by using a Scor-bug embosser to create my quilted backdrop for my image and sentiment.
I used Versafine Black Onyx ink before watercoloring with an aquapainter and the ODBD ink pads listed above; the image and sentiment were then die cut with Spellbinder's Oval and Long Rectangle dies. A closeup of the design follows:
A bit of ribbon finishes the design. Hope you like it!
Our blog hop today shows off five gorgeous sets released today. If you've come to my blog first, be sure to head back to the beginning of the blog hop at Our Daily Bread Designs' blog.
Here are the gals before and after me in the hop:
And now for something we all love - CANDY! There are three stops along the HOP today that are offering candy and I am one of them!
