Isn’t this a fabulous rooster image? I just love it & it’s so fun to color. I knew roosters have a lot of color, but until I did an image search, I didn’t realize just how colorful they are! I used my Misti to stamp my rooster w/ Memento then colored him with Copics. Since it was still in the Misti, I stamped over him using Versafine & the details just popped! Then I did what turned out to be a tricky die cutting on the image by cutting only the top half w/ a pierced circle and only the bottom half w/ a pierced square. I like how it turned out. For the top background, again I used the Misti to stamp the wonderful Bandana image onto kraft card stock then used a white gel pen to add some tracings around the image.

My second card uses this fabulous new Hot Air Balloon Reverse die! I’m over the moon with it! At first I was going to put some designer paper behind it, but changed my mind and made a brayered background for it. I had a leftover piece of matte coated card stock (it really soaks up the ink) & after brayering it, I masked the center & stamped the edge of Wood Background image with black ink then I sprayed it w/ a matte acrylic sealer because this matte coat paper is a little fussy & I wanted the ink to stay put.
I attached the white die cut onto a second die cut & then some pieces of thick card stock to elevate it above the background. The greeting was stamped in the lower right & some sequins added for sparkle. Here’s the inside.

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs August Release! We have some fabulous new images & dies for you this month and I know you’re going to love them!
On my first card, I made a couple of water color backgrounds using yellows, oranges & peach colors. I stamped the Boho Paisley Background on one, the butterfly on part of another & used another portion for the greeting oval. I didn’t want to completely cover the new Boho Paisley Bg image, but I wanted a little separation behind the butterfly, so I only used part of the white die cut Boho Bg die. The greeting was die cut w/ the new Oval & Stitched Oval dies. I used a neon yellow gel pen to add a Bandana effect to the butterfly & background.Here’s a look at the inside.

My second card started with two white panels I brayered with a rainbow ink pad.
I used one to stamp the Boho Faith pattern, then I black embossed it and die cut w/ the Vintage Label die & added a larger white layer behind it. I die cut the Flourished Pattern out of black, attached it to the larger background then embossed them both w/ the Flourished Pattern die. The die cut Hope was added along with some fussy cut little flowers (from the Boho Love set) & I used a white gel pen to add highlights.

This is for the color challenge at Splitcoast (CC298).
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I went from the card base up on this instead of my usual image first, then the rest. So I have a 5.5 x 4.25 kraft card, then a narrow red layer and another kraft. On this layer, I stamped the snowflake bg w/ the red chalk ink then added all the white accents w/ the white gel pen.
For the mistletoe tag, I stamped only half of it w/ the choc ink, turned it, and stamped the same end again to create a mistletoe rect instead of a tag. I used the tag die and traced around the scallop end, turned it and traced it again on the opposite end then cut it out.
The sentiment was also done w/ the red ink and I used the Spellbinders ovals to die cut it and the red oval. The sentiment was accented w/ the white gel pen and the edge was done w/ the white galaxy marker. I used both galaxy markers for the dotted edge around the mistletoe rect.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
