A Look Back at Our Daily Bread Designs' February Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' February Release.  This time I decided to use not only a new die, Hello but the new Wildflower Silhouette Background stamp along with the new Wildflower Silhouette  single.
Here is the card/project I created with them. 

I started with a navy card stock base (5.5 x 4.25 inches) and added a white CS mat.  I used the background image to stamp my image on the base layer (with Versamark) and added clear embossing powder.  After heating and cleaning the image up, I gently sponged three shades of blue ink over the image.  I started with Memento's Summer Sky, added a bit of Memento's Nautical Blue around the top and finished with Memento's Paris Dusk.  I used the last ink sparingly, just around the top edges.  Then I sponged Olive Grove ink (also from Memento) on the bottom edge.  After achieving the desired look, I gently wiped off the embossed image with a paper towel to remove any excess ink.  I cropped it to be slightly smaller than my white CS mat.  

I chose to use the same matting scheme for my top layer along with the embossing technique.  But this time I chose the single image to emboss.  After inking it to my desired color depth, I trimmed it to fit, added the double mat and placed some dimensional foam under it.  I like to make my images "pop" off the base when possible!  I go through tons of dimensional foam...  :-)
Finally, I pulled out some white and navy card stock (leftovers) and die cut my sentiment.  I layered them slightly off center to add some shadowing.  A bit of wet glue and it was good to go!

So here are the items you see today...
