Go shopping!

Our Daily Bread designs is excited to release 2 new sets this month, Sing to the Lord, and Fishers of Men! As with their other sets, both new releases feature a main sketched image and several coordinating verses. These sets also include accent stamps.

I've been watercoloring a lot lately...therapy, I guess! Both cards are done using Derwent watercolor pencils, blended using a waterbrush (Niji).

Special touches - on the fish basket, I trimmed along the edge of the lid, and propped it up with a spot of glue underneath. The flower centers on the second card are accented with Diamond Dust - very sparkly!

These browns and blues are part of a color challenge that Kelley gave the design team. ODBD carries the full line of Prismatics cardstock, which is textured on one side and smooth on the other. Pretty cool stuff!

On my list of things to do today: go to the post office, order more double-stick tape, make some progress on our "finish up 1st grade" list (got so far behind when we were traveling...).

Have a great day!
