And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

ODBDSLC159 Sketch

Hello everyone!  Hope your week got off to a good start. Here it is Tuesday again and time for another Shining the Light Challenge and this week Chris has a sketch for us!
This week's challenge is:
A Sketch

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a PRIZE, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store!!  Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, June 23rd at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced with the next challenge.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments, we would love to see them if you have them.  As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award.  In order to qualify for this award, you must use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, June 23rd at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC159.  When creating your posts on blogs, please include a link to the challenge.  Thank you!  We love seeing your creations!

Here's my card for ODBDSLC159:

Creative Nugget:  The front of the card was made by stamping the Fishing Net Background with Wild Honey Distress Ink on a Harvest Gold panel.  A little sponging with the same ink was done around the edges before matting it on True black card stock and attaching it to a Harvest Gold card base.  The lighthouse image from the Keep My Lamp Burning set was masked and the sky sponged with distress inks.  Some Coloring with Copic Markers was done to finish the second panel.  More masking and sponging was done to create the ocean scene.  The fishing boat from The Waves on the Sea set was stamped with the help of a stamp positioner.  This panel was cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval, mounted to a Terracotta Tile Opulent Oval Die, and then to a True Black Memory Box Die.  The oval was switched to the other side of the card from the sketch to accommodate the images.  The Compass was stamped again and fussy cut to pop up on the front of the card.  The banners were hand cut.  The sentiment from the All Occasion Sentiments stamp set was stamped onto vellum and stitched to the card front.  A few pearls finish the card.

Here you can find the supplies used from the ODBD Store!
