ODBD Collage!



Hi everyone! I have always been amazed by other crafters' collage pieces, but usually have a tough time doing one myself....not enough vision on my own without copying someone else's work! Thank goodness that it's a popular thing around the stamping world to CASE (copy and share everything) others' work as long as you give them the recognition! This week's "Queen for the Day" over at Splitcoast is BigFootBecky......I was so excited to see this awesome collage card in her gallery to help me along! I used one piece of 7 Gypsies designer paper which had several colors in it...thought it would make some good contrast. The sentiment and anchor image are from the "Anchor" set, the word background is actually the names of Jesus from the background stamp "He Shall Be Called", and the small piece with the Jesus fish was stamped with the "Fish Background"....these are all February new releases from Our Daily Bread designs. Though the collage is not perfect by any means, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for the inspiration, Becky!!!!!:)




I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Paper Sundaes: Masculine Colors;
Stampin Sisters in Christ: the color green;
Our Creative Corner: Word Background;
Stampin B's: Monochromatic.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Not sure if I will have a post for tomorrow, but come back Tuesday for the Christian Paper Crafts monthly blog hop! Click on the banner above to the right to read all about how you can play along too!!!

Have a very blessed week!!

Oh, Angela, this is just sensational. I checked out the card you cased on SCS and yours is so much nicer, but I'm glad you got inspiration there so you were able to make this beauty. I've seen several cards today made this this set and it is absolutely wonderful. Your colors and paper are so pleasing to my eye! Awesome job on the Get Wordy challenge. We are so happy to have you as a regular player with Our Creative Corner!

Just gorgeous! Love the background and, of course, the beautiful anchor image. You made a super collage card and I'm so glad you joined the Stampin B's monochromatic challenge this week.

You did a lovely card. By the way, at one forum I was a member of, they strongly discouraged someone from CASE'ing others designs. . .
