ODBDSLC212 - Sketch Part 2

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is part 2 of our Sketch.  Join us here for all of the details.

Such a fun sketch, this time I heat embossed the Our Daily Bread Designs Bee Balm and water colored with Stampin Up markers.  I layered the image on Spellbinder dies and used one of the same dies, cut it in half and put it along the sides to frame my project.  A bit of lace made with a ODBD Beautiful Borders die is along the bottom.

ODBD Stamps Used: Bee Balm
ODBD Dies Used: Beautiful Borders

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, foam tape, embossing folders, seam binding ribbon, Stampin Up Markers, heat embossing, water pen.

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