Aqua Flowers cu 07394
Today we’re taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs Mid September Release! Don’t you love the flower images & fabulous flower & border dies? I know I do!  
Aqua Flowers 07393
My card today is all about the dies & mostly black & white with just a touch of pale aqua in the flowers & large background. A long while back, I made some backgrounds on black card stock by placing some drywall mesh across it (it’s sticky on the back side, like magic mesh), then brayering over it using white acrylic paint. I used one of these for my middle layer & for the leaves & flower centers. I used one of the Leafy Edged Border dies to divide the white panel & add a little interest.

The flowers were all die cut out of white, shaped a little, then the centers sponged with tumbled glass Distress ink. The greeting was die cut out of the Chalkboard paper collection & the largest background is from the Shabby Rose paper collection. Here’s a look at the inside. Aqua Flowers inside 07399

 Welcome to part two of the January challenge for  Serendipity Stamps!  We’re switching things up a bit in 2014…The challenges will now be MONTHLY so you have longer to play. The design team will still provide inspiration twice a month (every other Wednesday), but you will have the whole month to play along! The Serendipity Challenge this month is Buttons.  And for the Design Team, we’ve added the twist of using the chalkboard technique with the buttons.You can find all the details on how to play along with us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. With each challenge we always have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player. The sale of the week is Free Shipping on all continental US orders $10 and up, good through 1/22/14.

For my Sunny Chalkboard card,  I stamped the wonderful quote with white chalk ink onto black card stock. I used a white gel pen to highlight the frame and letter K then used a sponge and a very light touch to add some “chalk dust” to the background. The half sun image was stamped on white, colored with Copics and I trimmed around the rays to insert the chalkboard underneath. The black grid layer is a left over from a painted grid technique using white acrylic paint and drywall mesh. A few die cut buttons were stacked and added to the corner. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
