Sneaky Peek for Our Daily Bread designs!

Happy Saturday, everyone! I'm so excited to have a sneak peek finished for the February sets by Our Daily Bread designs! Wait until you see the New Releases on Tuesday....perfect for masculine cards and more! I have used the "Stone Fish" single stamp along with the "Fish Embossing Plate". I inked up the embossing plate with Not Quite Navy ink so that the de-bossed images would be colored. The "Stone Fish" image was stamped in Not Quite Navy, cut out with paper snips and exacto knife, sponged with Ranger Antique Linen and SU Early Espresso ink, and popped up with foam tape over some May Arts Jute. Don't fall down from shock, but I actually did some distressing (ack!)....PLUS there is no paper piercing!! haha!

Here is a close-up of the "Stone Fish" image....I LOVE this stamp! (Can't wait to show you more later!)

I have used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Shining the Light Challenge by Our Daily Bread designs: "The Blues";
Clean and Simple Saturday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts: dry embossing on your CAS card;
Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast: this crib set from Rooms by Zoya B inspired me with the blue and cream colors;
AI Factory: For the boys;
Stamp Insanity: Create a peaceful project;
Tuesday Throwdown: Distressing;
Critter Challenge: Distressing and a circle (brads);
Oooh-la-la: 3 of a kind (3 crosses);
Paper Sundaes: Distressing.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed weekend!!!

Angella I love your card, there is something so wholesome about it & the twine really finishes it off to perfection.
Can you tell me the meaning of the fish & why it symbolizes Jesus? I could take a guess but would like to know the correct answer.

God bless.
