Keep My Lamp Burning

I'm excited to show off a brand-new, beautiful stamp set released today by Our Daily Bread Designs. It's called Keep My Lamp Burning, and was illustrated by fellow DT member, Dina Kowal. The upper left corner is designed to hold one of four different sentiments, three are Bible verses and one is a quote. I really love the artsy, collage look of this lighthouse image. It looks great colored traditionally or stamped onto dp or onto a handmade background - great for technique lovers.

For today's card, I stamped on watercolor paper, heat embossed, and then watercolored with an aqua brush and re-inkers. The patterned papers are from a photo mat stack by K&Co. I embellished with a new-to-me BossKut flourish die. I love all these swirly dies and just keep on stocking up whenever I see one that strikes my fancy. This one, Flourish #0739, was purchased from Cut @ Home. I coated the lighthouse with Ranger Crackle Glaze. Here's a close-up:

And here's a look at the full set:

ODBD introduced two more sets today as well:
