The Mighty Sea - ODBD February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs February Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Connie's Blog, you are in the right place, if not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog, and hop from there.  There will be FOUR winners who will each win 1 Free Stamp set of their choice and ONE Bread Basket Bundle Winner - for full details click here.  The Hop will run 8am EDT Feb. 1st til 8pm EDT Feb. 2nd, the winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Feb. 3rd.

For my project featuring the February Release, I created an Explosion Box.  I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the Explosion Box Template from Chocolate, Vanilla and Core'dinations Whitewash card stock.  For the box lid, I stamped the hymn, It is Well with my Soul in Black Archival on a Vanilla panel, then added the image from The Mighty Sea in Caramel.  I added a dyed Seam Binding Bow, a tag stamped with a sentiment from The Sea, and verse from The Mighty Sea.
For the front panel of the box, I stamped the image from The Mighty Sea in Black Archival, then colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and Gamsol.  To add the cloud background, I sponged Blue ink around a scallop edge.

The flaps of the Explosion Box are perfect for photos, or stamped images.




On the box bottom, I stamped the sentiment from The Sea in Black Archival, then added the image from The Mighty Sea in Caramel. 

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs It Is Well with my Soul, The Mighty Sea, The Sea

Lisa this is extraordinary! This box is like one gift after another--so many layers! I have never seen one before! I love how you have the hymn on the cover with all of that ribbon...and how the quote goes off of the lid.

I like how you stamped the scene with the dark ink, and then colored it in. The colors, and coloring are amazing! It looks so unlike any of the other samples, by choosing these colors.

This is incredible, Lisa!

He IS Able!
