ODBD #3-Secret Admirer


I haven't posted for awhile, but that doesn't mean I haven't been stamping. I've actually made several cards that I've needed to get done. I needed to make a wedding card for a friend, so I decided to make it for the third challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs. The challenge is to acknowledge and case a crafter you admire or a creation you admire changing just two elements to make it your own. I chose to CASE this one from Yvonne's blog. She does the most beautiful things with Spellbinders dies. First off, my image is different than hers. I used a Gina K image called "With This Ring", designed by Rupa Shevde, since this is for a wedding. I colored it with very light Copics. I also did not have the same corner punch she used for the circle so I had to change that. My DP is from SU's Afternoon Tea, so I changed more than two elements. I thought it was an exquisite card though and one that would be perfect as a wedding card. I need to build up my inventory of ODBD Stamp sets, so I did not use one of their images on this. They don't require it, but love it if you do use one. I hope to have more of my creations to share with you, including a new release coming up at the Busy Beauties Boutique, and it's a cutie for sure. Thanks for stopping by.
