Our Daily Bread Designs

I recently went to a stamp show in Atlanta and I renewed my addiction to Our Daily Bread Designs. I had initially discoverd them on the internet and then saw the stamps when I went to Stampaway last year. They have wonderful religious verse sets. They also have a great design team, the card samples in the booth were beautiful. I made a card using the stamps I purchased. I used Van Dyke Brown ink but it looks green. I assume my ink has gotten old but I like the look of it. The tapestry background is by Hero Arts.

Inspired by Donna Downey

This is a small canvas that I did inspired by Donna Downey. I used Making Memories rub-ons and Golden Paints. It was quick and easy to make. I sprayed the canvas with water and then added the paint. Golden paints are joy to work with and cover well. After spraying the canvas I added the paint and blotted it to get the coverage I wanted. I used my heat gun to speed the drying. Once it was dry I added the rub-ons and then added a piece of patterned paper along the bottom of the canvas, added a sticker from 7 Gypsies and then stamped the flowers with Titanium white Golden paint. I also edged the canvas with Walnut Stain distress ink. My friend Gail was the recipient of the canvas. I always promise her I am going to send her items in the mail and it takes me forever to send it, so I had to make it up to her. She was needless to say surprised.
