NEW RELEASE / BLOG HOP / DT COLOR CHALLENGE / GUEST DESIGNER CONTEST




WOW, July is here already!!! And that means brand new sets from Our Daily Bread Designs!!!! This set is called, "Let Us Begin", one of two beautiful sets which feature Mother Teresa's brilliant words. We girls on the ODBD Design Team, lovingly called "The Breadsticks", were given a challenge to use three colors ONLY from the Our Daily Bread Designs ink pad collection. I chose Olive, Terra Cotta, and Sunflower. The background scene was sponged with my three colors onto watercolor paper. The layout is Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge today....a little tricky for the set I wanted to use!! The lotus flowers were colored with a blender pen and ink, and then painted with Buttercream Shimmerz.....don't forget....Shimmerz is on sale this week at ODBD!!!
Finished with LOTS of paper piercing, Hero Arts black pearls, and satin ribbon by May Arts.
