I've decided to play along with the Our Daily Bread challenges again this week. The latest challenge, ODBDSLC48, is as follows:
This week the challenge team would like to see your creations using our "Have a H.E.A.R.T." recipe. You must use three of these ingredients.
A=Any Our Daily Bread Images or Sentiments
R= Ribbon or lace
T= Tearing or distressing
I chose to do E = Embossing, A = ODBD image and T = tearing or distressing.
This also fits for the current Stamping In Time challenge, SNTODBD28, to use distressing. I didn't know ODBD had these challenges too. Fun, Fun! The other requirement is to mail this off to someone in real life distress as an encouragement.
Now I know this isn't the typical card you see using Our Daily Bread Designs. They are usually gorgeous and ornate. I'm not an *ornate* crafter, but more importantly, I just felt like making a CAS card showcasing a wonderful scripture verse. "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths." I know this card will be an encouragement to my friend.
I heat embossing the verse in silver EP. It really does look pretty cool IRL. I distressed the edges of the white cardstock with Basic gray ink. I also distressed the black cardstock with an edge distresser.
