Yesterday I had fun playing with one of my all time favorite stamp sets from Our Daily Bread designs called Sing to the Lord. I am so looking forward to spring and seeing the green grass, the flowers, and the birds. The color challenge was so springy (Pirouette Pink, Perfect Plum and Kiwi Kiss) and this set just matched perfectly. I even got to use some of my all time favorite designer papers from Stampin Up (Bella Rose and Parisian Summer, I only wish I hoarded more of Parisian Summer before it retired!!). They are so yummy!!!
The Pink Pirrouette background paper and the white behind the image are embossed with the textile embossing folder.
The Technique Lover's challenge for Monday was to take a stamped image, dry embossed image or designer paper and cut it out to make it a part of your card. My entire image as well as the corner is cut out. The birds and flowers were embossed, glittered and layered for a 3D look. I used Mojo73 for my sketch! Combining these challenges was indeed a challenge but FUN!
STAMPS: OUR DAILY BREAD designs- Sing to the Lord
