Sunset Sympathy & Blog Hop




Today is Our Daily Bread designs October release! To celebrate, we are throwing a "Blog Hop," complete with prizes! Be sure to start the hop at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog!

There are three new releases for October: my design today features "With Deepest Sympathy." Isn't this a serene and beautiful image? I really enjoyed coloring it.

I began by stamping my scene onto watercoloring paper with Versafine Black Onyx ink. I watercolored the sky with Lyra Watercolor Crayons and my aquapainter, attempting to capture a multicolored setting sun.

I then stamped the image once again...this time with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto PTI Vintage Cream cardstock. I colored the trees and lake with Copic markers, then cut the scene out and layered it onto the watercolored sky. Dimensionals and dimensional tape added to the popped-up tree lined scene.
Some rusty colored textured cardstock made for a frame for my scene. A circle Spellbinder Nestability was used to create the frame's opening.

Nutmeg Bazzil paper, along with copper brads, finish this simple textured design. And now for the blog candy!

Today’s Design Team Blog Hop will not only give you lots of inspiration for these sets and what you can do with them…. Three lucky winners will be randomly drawn to receive three prizes that are hidden along the way! You need to start here at the ODBD Blog, and hop to the links from here, making a comment on each blog! After you have visited and commented on all the blogs, come back here to this post and tell us:
1. That you have visited and commented on each blog on the hop, and
2. What you liked best about these sets!
Three of these blogs have candy but you won’t know which ones and even the designers won’t know yet! This hop will be open for comments until 6PM EST Friday Oct 2. Then the three designers who have the hidden candy will randomly draw a name from all their comments!
You will qualify for the prizes IF you have commented on all the blogs and come back here to tell us you have and told us what you liked best about these new releases! Those names will be posted on the ODBD Blog on Sat. Oct 3!!! Be sure to check back here to see who won, and contact Kelley to find out how to use your Store credits!
