All images are Our Daily Bread designs and are a sneak peek at the August new images to be released Aug 1. For the challenges, I used my new, never been used, Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder on the kraft c/s. I first inked the folder w/ brown/tan ink then ran the kraft c/s thru it. I also distressed all the edges on it and the tan frame.
The sunflowers were stamped w/ the choc ink onto w/c paper, colored w/ markers and cut out. I arranged them behind the cut out oval then attached a piece of drywall mesh that I had rubbed sand ink over. I threaded tiny strips of tan c/s thru the mesh to resemble a fence.
The sentiment tag was stamped first w/ the sunflowers and the golden wheat ink then over stamped w/ the quote in choc ink. I tied a little raffia thru the hole and also around the two cut out sunflowers in the bottom right. The edges of the 5.5 x 4.25 (A2) ivory card were sponged w/ the sand ink.

Congrats to Toni, the Featured Stamper today at Splitcoast! I enjoyed strolling thru her gallery and finally picked For Traci to case. I changed the images and colors but kept the cross as the central image and the general layout.
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. The wheat cross was stamped w/ cranberry ink, a hint of color added w/ markers and cut out using the Out of the Box Nestie Technique.
The side panel was made by stamping the wheat bunch image repeatedly using the different ink colors. The cranberry c/s was spritzed w/ bleach to get the mottled appearance.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always read and much appreciated!
