ODBD For the Love of New Beginnings Blog Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Alumni Team bi-monthly hop, this weeks hop theme is For the Love of  New Beginnings! I'm the start of the hop this week, a complete list of those participating in the hop can be found  the ODBD Blog.


You'll want to be sure to visit and comment on all the participating designers blogs, because one of them is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that blogs comments to win a $15 ODBD gift certificate. You have until Wednesday, January 16th at 6PM EST to leave comments.


Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Faith, Little Things, Honeycomb Background and Butterfly Branch Die.  Paper - Bo Bunny Country Garden
Inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch and this weeks theme, I used Our Daily Bread Designs Faith , Little Things and the Honeycomb Background stamps on my card.  I also used Our Daily Bread Designs Exclusive Butterfly Branch Die to cut out the Butterfly Branch.


All pattern papers are from the Bo Bunny Country Garden Collection.  I used Ink and Roll Technique to randomly stamp the Honeycomb Background in Blue in onto the pieces of pattern paper.  The Butterfly Branch from the Faith set is stamped in Black on a piece of scrap pattern paper, then die cut with the Butterfly Branch Die using the Big Shot.  I stamped the image again on scraps, cut out the butterflies and adhered them over the stamped image with dimensionals.  To add color to the branch and leaves, I used STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Faith, Little Things, Honeycomb Background
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Chocolate, Blue

This is beautiful Lisa. I love your soft colors and that wonderful sentiment. I also really like the way you added dimension to your butterfly branch.

Those stamps with matching dies are some of my favorites. Since I love cutting and layering, they make it so easy. Fussy cutting takes too long!
