ODBD March Release Look Back!

Teal Gate cu 08682
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs March release! Don’t you love the stars & keys? The dies & sets are so beautiful & versatile! Since I made a number of cards w/ the stars, today I’m featuring the keys.

Teal Gate 08683
I like the contrast of turquoise/teal with coral/peach so I made a Wrinkle Free Distress bg on watercolor paper using the distress inks, a craft sheet & a mister w/ water. I did the turq/teal colors first, leaving some white space & when it dried, I did the coral/peach colors. Doing the colors separately helps prevent getting muddy colors. After it dried, I die cut it w/ the largest matting basic die so it would be just a tad bigger than the turquoise Vintage Flourish Pattern die cut. Before I attached it, I sponged just the edges of the turquoise to help better define them. I tucked the teal Gilded Gate in the bottom of the turq. die cut I stamped the greeting w/ the Versafine onto a small Vintage Label die cut. The coral orange layers were also die cut, the edges sponged & I added just the fancy ends of the smallest Vintage Flourish dies cut out of teal, on top of the coral. The die cut Keys were threaded thru the lacy teal layer.
