ODBDSLC211 - Sketch

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is a Sketch.  Join us here for all of the details.

For the sketch, I chose the new ODBD sand dollar from the Ocean Treasures stamp set and sentiment from The Mighty Sea stamp set, I wanted to make a masculine card for my father's birthday this week.  The sand dollar was heat embossed and colored with Stampin Up pens and layered on a Spellbinder oval which was stamped with the ODBD Fishing Net background stamp. For the net embossed piece, I inked the embossing folder, the other two were sponged with cream colored pigment ink.

ODBD Stamps Used: Ocean Treasures, The Mighty Sea, Fishing Net Background
ODBD Dies Used: Beautiful Borders Dies

Other Supplies: Embossing folders, SU markers, water pen, foam tape, Spellbinder dies.
