ODBDCC03 Classic "Color" Challenge!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Classics Challenge number three over at the ODBD Forum! Every Tuesday, there is a new card challenge....this week we will revisit a "classic" color challenge from the Christian Paper Crafts era of the forum. Though I do not believe in "coincidences", the timing of this color challenge and inspiration photo was perfect to create a sneaky peek of an upcoming set by Our Daily Bread designs, called "The Mighty Sea", which will be released on February 1. I have also entered this in the Hand-Stamped Sentiments "Beach" Challenge.

The ocean scene and sentiment were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then colored using sponge daubers and ink pads, plus markers. The ODBD Fence Die cut was wrapped in blue and white baker's twine to bring out the blue in the ocean. The card was embossed with a SU Square Lattice embossing folder.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'The Mighty Sea';
Cardstock: SU Bravo Burgundy, Bordering Blue, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White;
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU Bravo Burgundy, Bordering Blue, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Apricot Appeal;
Accessories: ODBD Fence Die, Baker's Twine, Dew Drops, SU 'Square Lattice' Embossing Folder, paper piercer and template, sponge daubers, foam tape;
Size: 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.

Thanks for stopping by today! God bless!

This is very impressive. I think it needs to be on display on a mantle for sure!! I love the rich colors and the highlights, too. Thank you for sharing your beachy project with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
