I want to wish a very BIG Happy Birthday to Kelley Holland, owner of Our Daily Bread designs! Kelley has filled a spot in the stamping world by creating stamps that glorify and focus on our Heavenly Father! I have been a long time admirer of ODBD...right from day one in fact! Thanks so very much for your hard work and dedication Kelley!
I began this design by using ODBD's "Happy Birthday" set. You have seen me use this image quite often...it is so very much fun to color! I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with numerous Copic markers. After coloring the design, I desired a more milky, toned down look to match the decorator paper. I used Cool Gray I to gray the blue and gray colors down, then used Brick White over the entire colored portion to give bit of a milky look. After coloring, I die cut the image with a Spellbinder's Labels One die.
Stampin' Up Sage Shadow is the base of my design, along with Wild Asparagus "Cousins" Floral decorator paper. An unknown white sheer bow and tab finish my birthday design.
