Touchdown


I don't know about you, but I never seem to have enough masculine cards on hand.  Inspired by the Viva la Verve Sketch, I used images from the Artistic Outpost Go Team stamp set along with Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Dies and Bo Bunny pattern paper to create my card.

I added some paper piecing on the football players uniform and football.

Our Daily Bread Designs February Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the New Release post and Blog Hop showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs February Release! You can see all of the February Releases here. Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $25 Gift Certificates to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

Today, I'm sharing two cards I created with the following products from the February Release: With Much Thanks stamp set, Thank You Die, Easter Eggs Dies, Easter Card Collection 2016 and Pastel Paper Pack 2016, along with previously released ODBD Custom Dies.  (See supply list below).

The struggle was real....It took everything I had to not break out ink and sponge dauber, or Black card stock!  If you are a frequent visitor to my blog you know that my signature style is black layers.  Both of my cards are CAL (clean and layered) with a lot of dies thrown in for added interest and detail.

I love the flourish script on the new Thank You word die, here I paired it up with beautiful papers from the Easter Card Collection 2016 and Pastel Paper Pack. Using the Double Stitched Rectangles and Rectangles die sets I was able to layer the papers for a lovely background.  The tiny flowers that embellish my card are from the Easter Eggs die set.

Alcohol Ink Mixed Media Altered Frame Tutorial

Today, I'm sharing an Altered Frame Tutorial using the eBrush and Siphon Adapter Kit along with Alcohol Inks, some DecoArt Mixed Media Mediums, Deli Paper, Just a Trace Stencils and a Wooden Frame.

Here's my finished project



Details:
eBrush with Siphon Adapter Kit 
Other: Just a Trace Stencils, Foam Brush, Non Stick Craft Mat, Alcohol Inks (I used three colors plus a Silver Metallic, DecoArt Texture Paste, DecoArt Matte Medium, Deli Paper, Wooden Frame, Paper Towel (not shown)


Cover your work surface, I'm working on a Non Stick Craft Sheet.  Using Foam Brush, apply Texture Paste to frame.  Cover completely.


Place stencil over wet Texture Paste, add additional paste through the stencil. This will add additional texture to your frame.


Set aside, and let completely dry.


Place multiple sheets of Deli Paper in a stack, before you begin, as the Alcohol Inks will bleed through to your work surface.  MAKE SURE you work surface is protected.  Using the eBrush and Siphon Adapter Kit, spray Alcohol ink onto Deli Paper. You'll see the ink spread into the fibers.


Continue to add Alcohol inks as desired.  If your colors start to puddle or get muddy, simply pull the color up with a paper towel.


Left completely dry.


Apply Matte Medium to the frame, then adhere torn pieces of your colored Deli Paper to the frame.  


Continue to cover your frame with the Matte Medium and colored Deli Paper.  Be sure to apply the Matte Medium over the finished frame.  Let Dry.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
