Taking a Look Back at the ODBD January Release!

 Good morning! 

We are happy to have you with us today as we look back 

My first card features Music Speaks.  It is stamped onto a die cut from the Vintage Flourish Pattern dies.  I colored the image with copics.  I stamped the image a second time in blue and cut out the bird adhering it to the panel.  I added the little bow from the Circle Ornament dies to complete the card.

Here is my next card:

I am really loving practicing mixed media techniques!  I used several pieces of various ODBD Designer Papers, some torn and some straight cuts I had saved.  I used Matte Gel medium to glue it all down.  There are a couple of pieces of dictionary paper in there too!  I used a lego block with gesso to stamp the little white circles.  I stamped the Treble Clef and the sentiment from Music Speaks onto designer paper and cut out to glue down as well.  I had to be careful so the distress ink I used would not smear.  I did want the ink to smear around the edges where I stamped the music though.  Kinda cool!  I also used blue paint and then the same distress ink to outline the card panel.  There is a strip of one of the Beautiful Borders at the bottom too.  Adding the vintage yellow ric rac was fun!  :D

Here are the ODBD supplies I used: 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
