Happy Sunday! I made this one for a couple of challenges at SCS: today’s Featured Stamper (congrats, Nicole!) challenge and Betty’s Stamping in Time (SNTODBD02) challenge featuring Our Daily Bread designs images.
For the FS challenge, I chose Nicole’s Crimson Silhouettes to case. I changed the images, colors and turned it on its side, but I kept the oval centerpiece w/ a rectangular shape beneath it. I’m using images from ODBD’s Sing to the Lord set. The bird, sentiment and one extra flower were all stamped in dk red. I used Prismacolor pencils to add some color and before you start wondering, I have no idea what kind of sparrow this is supposed to be. I just colored him to go with my dp, lol. Oval Nesties and the out of the box Nestie technique was used for the bird image. Graduated sizes of ovals were used for the additional layers (I used both the Large Petite ovals and the Small Petite ovals to get these sizes) and I layered them offset toward the top of the ovals. All the ovals are backed with some thin chipboard to give them added dimension. A little soft sand ink was sponged around the edges of the image oval.
On the soft yellowish print layer, I added some doodling with a burgundy Micron pen. On the burgundy band, I used a branch border folder to emboss it. The sentiment was cut out of the box as well and attached to a burgundy layer.
stamps: ODBD- Sing to the Lord
paper: white, dp (all are Basic Grey from the Boxer6x6 pad)
ink: Ancient Page bordeaux, Memories soft sand
accessories: Prismacolor pencils, Spellbinders oval Nesties sets, Cuttlebug border folder (Just My Type), burgundy Micron pen
I started this on Monday for TLC257 at Splitcoast, to make a side step card, but wasn’t able to finish it until today. This is a sneak peek of a new February release from Our Daily Bread designs, He Watches Me. Since I’m a bird lover, these new releases are so perfect for me. While this little bird may look like a sparrow, I took a few liberties and colored him like a Varied Bunting with a lot of pinks and purples.
After stamping, coloring with markers and cutting the images out, I made my side step card according to the directions. I added some layers of dp and attached my bird and several extra thistle images across the front. The middle step has a punched top using a new bird border punch and the little nests are from another new set, You Will Find Refuge. The back step has the sentiment cut out with a Spellbinders tag Nestie and the edges were sponged;. I made a few faux brads using a 1/4 inch hole punch and added them.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
