ODBDSLC197 Rain or Water

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week it to make a card that contains rain or water.  Join us here for all of the details.

I've been really inspired by the new paper collections at Our Daily Bread Designs, and the one I chose here is the song 'It is Well with My Soul' from the ODBD Christian Faith Collection, it fits perfectly with this wonderful lighthouse which I colored with watercolor pencils.  The lighthouse is mounted  on the beautiful new ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern dies, which show off the paper underneath.  I finished it off with navy and lavender buttons tied with twine.

ODBD Stamps Used:  Light of the World
Other Supplies: water color pencils, twine, buttons, foam tape.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
