Lovely Color Challenge Combo



I was all smiles late last night when I saw today's color challenge on Splitcoast: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, and Chocolate Chip. I knew the combo would be perfect for some new stamps that Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing tomorrow, April 1. The one I was itching to work with first is a single stamp of a passage from 1 Corinthains 13. Is this not one of the most beautiful passages in the entire Bible?

I stamped it onto Prism's luxurious metallic card stock (Champagne), clear embossed, and cut it out with one of the mega curved rectangle Nestabilities. The designer papers are all from Basic Grey's Porcelain pack. I embellished with some Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red ribbon, the Fiskars lace border punch, and some self-adhesive pearls. Mine are a mix of brands similar to the ones in the ODBD store. Some were ivory and some were white, but after coloring each one with a R81 Copic marker (the closest thing to Pink Pirouette that I own), they look pretty uniform.

Here's another look where you can see the glimmer of the metallic card stock and the shine from the heat embossing:



If you like "pretty," soak this one in because tonight at midnight I'll be posting one of the wildest looking things I've ever made! I'm kinda skeered - really!

Thanks for dropping in!

This was soooo utterly gorgeous that I HAD to include it in today's ODBD blog post :). You sooooooooo ROCK!!

I have come back to this card of yours several times, to marvel at how you put everything together, and of course that Bible passage...one of my faves of all time. I've never bought a stamp from Our Daily Bread, but now I'm probably going to have to, that particular one is so versatile, in my mind at least =) You just have this great eye for placing elements that make something "complete"!!!
