Looking Back at the ODBD August Release!

Good morning! 
Today we are taking a look back at the ODBD August Release!  

My first card features Anchor the Soul.  I decided to pair it with a set that came out in 2009 called Footprints in the Sand.  After stamping the images I colored in with copic markers in various shades of brown.  Then with Spellbinders A-2 dies I embossed the frame around the images.  I used a copic multi liner to trace some of the stamped areas for a more definition.  I turned the panel over and used a stylus to emboss the anchor and the footprints and the sea gull.  The anchor and bird were fairly easy to see where to emboss but it was not quite so easy with the footprints as the ink was lighter there and didn't show through on the back very well.  But I still like how just that little bit of embossing looks!  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with an ODBD Custom Vintage Labels die.  I added the panel to the card base with foam tape.

Here is a quick note card I made with the Sand Dollar stamp.

I just stamped the Sand Dollar three times and cut each one out to pop up over the card panels!  I did a little sponging on each sand dollar too.  Simple as pie!

And one more...

For this one I used copic markers to color the background and then just stamped the Legend of the Sand Dollar and added a few vintage sequins!  Oh and I drew the sea gulls.  Another quick card!  

Here are the ODBD products I used for these cards:
