ODBD Bread Basket

Happy Tuesday Friends!! I hope you are all doing well!!!

Today I would like to share a card I made for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!!  

This week's challenge is: 
Include an image or product with wood or stone.

Often I make more feminine or detailed cards but today I chose to make a masculine card.
For my wood product I made a boat/ship using The Waves on the Sea and the Fishing Net Background The image is framed with Elegant Ovals and Spellbinders Labels 21.  The background is also embossed in the SU Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  The papers are SU Real Rust and Kraft.  The sentiment is cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Banners. The image is colored with copics and the water is painted with acrylic paint.

Fishing Net Background, The Waves on the Sea

ODBD Dies: Elegant Ovals Spellbinders dies: Labels 21, Classic Circles
Papers: Real Rust, Black and Kraft
Embossing Folder: Basket Weave
