This is my last week as guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team. It has been so much fun working with all the girls and Kelley, and designing cards using their beautiful stamps. Thank you so much ladies for this wonderful experience!
For this card, I wanted to use ODBD's beautiful Sing to the Lord set. My friends who visit my blog frequently must know that I love bluebirds, because I use them so often. When I was deciding on a color scheme, I remembered that as a child, I had always loved sky blue and gold together, and it might be pretty on this card, so I made this one a bluebird too. I stamped everything with VersaMark, and embossed it all in gold. The white paper is all Core'dinations Pearl because I love coloring with my Copics on this wonderful paper.
After coloring the bird and dogwood blossoms, I fussy cut them with scissors and mounted them dimensionally onto this sparkly sky blue paper I had in my stash. The blue was cut with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and mounted onto pearly white, then matted with gold mirror card, which was mounted onto a card I made with the white pearl. Then I outlined the blue with gold.
The psalm was cut with another of my Spellbinders dies, but I don't remember the name of it, and also mounted dimensionally onto the blue. Lastly, I added sky blue Liquid Pearls and white half pearls. I wish that instead of running my gold pen inside the die to outline the psalm, I had used a ruler and made the outline further from the verse, but I didn't really notice that until after I had mounted the psalm.
