ODBDSLC256- Create Your Own Inked or Embossed Background

Good morning!
Time for a new fun challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
Make your own background inked or embossed.
My card is both inked and embossed.

ODBD stamps:God Verses, Blossom
My background is done by using an inked brayer on one side of an embossing folder (LifeStyle-Rose Pattern).  I used vellum to print my God Verse so that the background can still be seen underneath. I cut it with the Stitched Oval die then I made an oval frame to go around it by using Stitched Oval die and the larger regular Oval die.  My top piece is the new release Leafy Edge Border die...pretty huh? It comes with three edges.  The image is the rose bud from the Blossom stamp set.  I stamped, colored and cut out 3 times.  The pink and green leaves were purchased as well as the pink and white braid at the top.  The bow is 1 1/2" sheer pink.

By participating in the challenge, you have a chance to win a  $15 ODBD Gift Certificate good towards the purchase of stamps in the “stamps column” on the ODBD website, or to be spotlighted on the ODBD Blog at our next challenge. The random prize winner will be posted on our next challenge post. Please do not post on Flicker as many of us do not have the ability to comment on your cards nor can we spotlight your cards on the blog.

The scripture on my card today is Matthew 6:33.  In it we find that if we spend our time concentrating on the things of God and promoting God's kingdom, we don't have to worry about the common needs of life, God will take care of us as he does the birds and animals and clothe us like the beautiful flowers...He is seeking followers, those who put Him and His purposes about their own agenda.
Study His word and seek Him out, He will be found by you!

Thanks for visiting!

Oh, I love this soft vellum look! I may have to still your idea for printing on vellum - I have a hard time getting the perfect crisp look on vellum. Gorgeous card, as always!

Julie Gearinger said...

I agree with Diana- the vellum is so soft and pretty! Love the roses along with the new border die (another one on my wish list :-)) and other fabulous details on your card! Thank you for your prayers and praying for you as well! Hugs and have a wonderful week, my friend!!
