Wow, can you believe that July is gone and August is here? I sure hate to see summer go by so fast, but I'm happy to see that Our Daily Bread designs has SIX new sets to release this month, plus custom made cutting dies for two of ODBD's stamped images!!!! Please see the New Release Post on the ODBD blog for all of the juicy details and to see all of the new sets!!! I usually display all of the new sets here, but since there are six sets plus the new dies, my post would be a novel!!!!
My sample today was made with the new "Don't Worry" set.....I absolutely LOVE this chicory flower image and the realistic butterfly is gorgeous too!! Using masking, I stamped the chicory image repeatedly on this tri-fold card, cut the flower outlines on the top of the two outside panels and punched the center panel with a Martha Stewart picket fence punch. The flowers were colored with Stampin Up markers, the apricot background was colored with a sponge dauber. The butterfly was sponged first with apricot, then highlighted with a Ruby Red marker and a white gel pen. This was a bit time consuming, but I will definitely make another one like it!!
