Posts Tagged ‘ODBD Alumni For the Love Hop’

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs  Alumni Team’s bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.   You may want to start at the ODBD Blog so you won’t miss a thing! This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of ODBD  embossing plates! 
 
Embossing plates are a little different from embossing folders, but there are a number of techniques to really show them off. I love distressing the embossed card stock with a sanding block to bring out the little embossed fish. I made sure to use a white core card stock so that when embossed and sanded, the embossed fish would really show up. Before I embossed it, I also added a little ink to the c/s and afterwards, I really roughed up the edges.
I paired the embossed fish panel with this wonderful new ship from Surging Sea and sentiment from Smooth Sailing. Water colors were used on thin water color paper (think kid’s w/c pad), then the image was stamped and bleached. Since I was into distressing, I continued on w/ roughing up the edges and even tore a bit off one corner. The sentiment was die cut w/ a little pennant die and also distressed. The white x’s on the orange dp were added w/ a white gel pen. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs‘  Alumni Team’s bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from the  blog of thevery talented Rosemary Dennis, then you’re in the right place. If not, you may want to go to the ODBD Blog  and start from the beginning. This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop for the For the Love of ODBD Backgrounds! 
 
For my card, I used two backgrounds: the Large Bird Background and the Wood Background.
 
The two backgrounds were stamped with the pigment ink and the edges sponged w/ the same ink and a little of the darker fluid chalk ink on the very edge.
 
On the sentiment/label, I placed a mask where the sentiment would be and inked the rest DTP (direct to paper) with the pixie dust ink at the top, papaya cream ink in the middle and rose coral ink at the bottom. After it dried,  I removed the mask and stamped the label and sentiment with black ink.  I really wanted to use gray ink, but it just looked too washed out. I used a white gel pen to add the tiny white dots around the flowers. It was die cut w/ the coordinating Spellbinders Labels 18 die.  I die cut a flourish out of some left over DTP c/s and added the two little punched birds and a double bow. The finished card is 6.25 x 4.50 (A6).

 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m also adding this to the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast (IC328).
