Daily Bread....

I need to get caught up with posting before the new releases come! Here are a couple more cards using July's Cross of Christ set from Our Daily Bread. For the first one, I stamped the 2 smaller crosses in chalk ink, then blended them into the background with a waterbrush, and added some Willow ink (Adirondack)...I love that color! I had some other paper out that didn't seem to match, but when I dug into my 6x6" papers, I found this piece that matched perfectly. Kind of amazing, really, considering the combination of willow, teal and tangerine....but very cool.

The second card is another scrap-strip background - there's a link to the tutorial on the left. I like to make those up when I have small scraps to use up, so this one was already premade in my scrap folder. Imagine me having an excess of green scraps....I added the wide diagonal strip, and positioned the words with my Stamp-a-ma-jig.

I have one more Thanksgiving card to share next time! Thanks for checking in on me!
