ODBD April New Release Blog Hop

Good morning!
Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's April New Release Blog Hop!

Today I have for you a lantern made with the new Luminous Lantern, Roses, Rose Leaves and Lovely Flowers also Mini Tags .

I cut the lantern from heavy weight pink card stock and then lined the inside with vellum.  I cut several layers of the rose die and sponged the petals with pink and yellow Distress Inks then formed them with a soft mat and large stylist type tool.  The centers have some yellow Prills inside.
 I made a bud using just the small peddles of the rose and glued it shut.  The leaves are cut with green then sponged with a darker green on the edges.
My ribbon is seam binding that was dyed to match the soft colors (and the inside part of the leaves).
I put a battery operated light inside the lantern and tied the tops, threading the ribbon through each hole and bringing it tight I also tied the mini tag with it (which says "Praying for you").
The Luminous Lantern die comes with 2 bottom pieces (4 or 5 sided) so that you can make your lantern like the one above or one that is 5 sided like a pentagon.
You can also have your top tucked in and flared out as I have mine above...so many options!

My next project is a card using To My Friend stamp set.

I made my background on water color paper using Color Burst and lots of water.  I dried it thoroughly and then put it in my Misti so that I could stamp it multiple times if necessary to get good coverage (since the paper is not smooth).  I also used some white acrylic paint and small stylist to make dots on some of the dandelion. I used white and black card stock for matting and framing to keep the pink/orange/yellow Color Burst background and images sharp and the focus on the images.
For a bit of embellishment I went with 3 acrylic half pearls in black.
