ODBD May Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs May Release Blog Hop! you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss anything! 

For my card, I’m using the sensational new Fishing Net Background & The Waves on the Sea sets.

Julie Warner - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com

I stamped the fishing boat scene and colored it w/ Copics, purposely leaving the sky a little streaky. Ever notice how the colors of a brilliant sunset can look streaky like that? I added some highlights w/ a white gel pen and die cut w/ a Spellbinders circle die. The shape reminded me of a porthole, so I added eyelets and little thread knots to continue that look. The net background was stamped tone on tone on the cobalt panel and 2 lg white eyelets and some tied white cord were added. The sentiment was cut out and I used a sm corner rounder on the ends. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
