A Look Back at ODBD's May Mid Month Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' May Mid Month Release.  Here is the card I created using the Mid Month release set, Ride Em' Cowboy.  For more inspiration using the May Mid Month Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.

I started out with a patriotic feel on this one...  perfect for Memorial Day...


Layer by Layer...

Navy Card Stock - 5.5 x 8.5 inches, scored and folded at 4.25 inches
Burgundy Card Stock - cut slightly smaller
White Card Stock for image panel cut with ODBD's - Pierced Rectangles Die

***Creative Nugget***  To create my background, I started by adding dots of Versamark (with a Versamark Pen) to the corner of white card stock and heat embossing with Clear Embossing Powder.  After cooling, I swiped Distress Ink (Faded Jeans) across the corner.  Using the direct to paper technique, I applied Frayed Burlap distress stain to my paper all over.  Once it dried, I took the corner of my Aged Mahogony distress Ink pad and gently added stripes.  I then stamped my image with a heavy black ink and applied in the desired corner.  After drying, I added Memento Ink with a pen where need to fill in the image.  After it cured, I added a light coat of Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to the image.  For the final touch...  I used Walnut Stain distress ink to age the edges (after lightly distressing the paper...)

I stamped my sentiment on Antique Linen inked white card stock and die cut using
ODBD's Pierced Rectangles Die.  A bit of tied jute finishes it off....

Here are the items you see today...
