Peace on Earth

I'm a little late posting my cards for Our Daily Bread's last release........my sets got stuck in customs and took almost 2 months to get here! Blah.........anyway.......the day that I got them of course I had to sit down and crank out a few inspired pieces...after all, I've had all this time to come up with ideas! Here are two cards made with the August release, Peace on Earth. I decided to try watercoloring with reinkers on these two, using a waterbrush. Still more to learn...but it was fun...and I'll be doing it again!
The first card uses a partial verse - just because it fit so nicely in the space there in my layout. In the second card, come to think of it, I also used a partial verse...hmm! But the tag on the second card covers up a nasty smudge...I still don't know where that black ink came from....

On the dove I used some shimmery watercolors that don't show well in the picture. The background paper is handmade paper with a silver print - it's so pretty in real life.

On a side note...I seem to have an abundance of blue paper scraps....so you may be seeing more blue cards these days than usual, as I attempt to use some of them up. God forbid I should ever throw a scrap away!!! LOL

Here is the set in it's entirety - click on the set to view and purchase it at Our Daily Bread designs!Keep an eye out for sneak peeks of the new October sets coming soon.....and pray that mine get to me!! One of them is new from dkdesigns...........

  4. Beautiful!!!
    I love your watercoloring on both!! That lion is STUNNING (he kinda has an Aslan quality to him). Even without seeing the shimmer in the "Peace" card--it is beautiful!! I love the contrast of the blue and the white!!
