Hello friends! Today Our Daily Bread Designs is taking a look back at the November 2013 Release. Here is a card made using The Earth and Earth Verses, two of the new sets released earlier this month:
Creative Nugget: In a world that seems to be spiraling out of control, where what is right is criticized and what is wrong is exalted, I love this verse that reminds us that we are to be the salt of the earth...to impact our world in a positive way. The verse reminded me of the Salted Technique which was used for the background. The Fishing Net Background was clear embossed on a piece of Multi Media paper. Water was spritzed on the panel and Distress Reinkers were applied with a paint brush. Course salt was then sprinkled on and spritzed again. This was dried with a heat tool and the salt rubbed off with a paper towel. I love the variations this technique achieved. The Earth was stamped over another piece of salted background made without the embossed Fishing Net and cut with the ODBD Custom Circle Ornament Dies. The sentiment from the Earth Verses set was stamped on a piece of Solar Crest card stock and texture was added with an impression plate. The background, designer paper, and the sentiment panel were stitched to True Black card stock, mounted onto Ocean Tides, and attached to a Solar Crest card base. The Earth was mounted on the front of the card with foam tape. A bit of Antique Border made with a scrap of the background paper was added along with some pearls and a twine bow to finish the card.
Here are the ODBD supplies used to create this card:
Here is another card using the Poinsettia Wreath stamp set and the matching Poinsettia Wreath Dies. I have been having so much fun with the little poinsettia from this set...it is the perfect accent for Christmas cards.
This card was used for the sketch challenge on SCS this week and will also be entered into the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge (ODBDSLC179) which was to make a holiday card (Thanksgiving or Christmas)...perfect for this time of year!
