Our Daily Bread part 2 - and free stamps!

Here's my 2nd - and favorite - card using the "Light of the World" set from Our Daily Bread designs - available now!

The card is a premade/precut tri-fold card I found on clearance a few months ago. If you have Nestabilities (sigh) that would also do the trick, I'm sure.

The sunset was so fun to work out. It's mostly done with Versamagic chalk inks. I stamped the image, and masked the lighthouse and shore, then applied a light yellow ink to the entire sky first. I then masked the sun circle and continued applying color direct-to-paper with the inkpads. The top portion is stippled with a brick red color. There is white acrylic paint added to the clouds and beams from the lighthouse, and I used a Spica glitter pen to further embellish the light and highlight the beams. After the sky was done, I removed the mask and colored in the lighthouse and land with prismacolor pencils, blending with OMS.

The saying is only partially stamped. The full saying is on yesterdays card. I masked off what I didn't want stamped using post-it notes, and then cleaned well between stampings...somehow my stamp cleaner pad adds more mess to my stamps....!

SOOOOOOOOOO.............how'd you like to win your own "Light of the World" set from Our Daily Bread? Kelley has generously allowed me to give one away on my blog! Leave a comment on this post and I'll draw one name on Monday, March 24th after lunch. Good luck!
