ODBDSLC279 Home for the Holidays

Hi Friends! 

Today I am sharing another card designed for the Our Daily Bread Designs “Shining the Light” ODBDSLC279 “Color Challenge” Challenge with a reminder that is not too late to join in on the fun!

You have until November 6th to join us for a chance to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light award or to win a $15 ODBD gift certificate (one random participant will be chosen).  To be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award, you must use ODBD stamps (or stamps from our sister companies: North Coast Creations or Artistic Outpost). 

If you have not already had a chance to visit my Design Team Sisters’ sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so!  Fabulous inspiration for sure!

To create this card:

Ink the lamp post image from the ODBD Home for the Holidays stamp set with archival black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and onto a piece of scrap paper to create a mask.

Fussy cut the mask and position over the stamped image on the white cardstock.

Create another mask for the moon with the ODBD Circle Dies and masks for the snow banks from sticky note paper.

Mask the snow banks and moon, sponge light and dark blue ink for the sky.

Remove the mask for the moon and re-position the snow bank masks to apply a bit of light blue ink to create additional snow in the foreground.

Remove the mask from the lamp post and color the lamp post using a water brush with water color pencils, markers, add white highlights as snow with an extra fine white paint pen and use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the lamp post.

Ink the Merry Christmas sentiment from ODBD Home for the Holidays stamp set with archival black ink and stamp within the sign on the lamp post.

Die cut the entire panel with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and mount onto a piece of white cardstock, trim close to the die cut edge and mount onto the dark navy card base.

Ink the sentiment from ODBD Home for the Holidays stamp set with archival black ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, die cut and emboss with the ODBD Ovals Dies.

Die cut and emboss a piece of dark navy cardstock with the ODBD Layered Lacey Ovals Dies, layer with the die cut oval sentiment and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

I hope that I have inspired you to create something with the colors from the ODBDSLC279 Color Challenge and we are looking forward to seeing your artwork in the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge gallery!

This is incredible. It looks like the lamppost is 3 D.
You always list your colors you used, but not this time. Can you tell us what blue it was?
Thanks and love your work.
