Answer the question on the ODBD blog in your comment on the ODBD blog (not all the designers blogs)

***********************

I got this frame at a garage sale knowing it would be of good use soon!

7-1 a

Not Forgotten and Old Flag Background stamped and colored with Copics, sponged with Distress inks and LOTS of distressing!

7-1clsup1

I spritzed the Old Flag Background with water and crumpled it before sponging with inks. Direct to paper and inks sponged on embossed Distressed Stripes for the backgrounds.

7-1 tag

I did some Faux Metal for this Spellbinders Grommet Tag. (embossed a piece of cardstock 5x with silver ep and while still warm, stamped the sentiment)
I rubbed some black acrylic paint over the wording then wiped off the excess.

***********************

This is a project I did for Creative Cuts and More

CCM SW

collage

On this gift box from Creative Cuts and More I used Sweet William Large and Small, coloring each with a wash of Spun Sugar Distress re-inker and water, letting the flower soak up a lot of the moisture making it easy to crumple. Then carefully unfolding each one and allowing to air dry and layering with tulle cut with the same Blossom 3 dies as the flowers, I fastened them with a Making Memories glitter brad. The entire flower and Spellbinders Grommet Tag was spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist. CCM SW clsup

Here is my first video showing how to use the Spellbinders Blossom 3
and grrrrr, there is a typo! Oh well… (be easy on me! it’s not a “talkie” as I was nervous enough!! LOL)

Well, you’ve come to the end of the hop! How did you like it!! So many awesome ideas!!

Now it’s time to go back to the
Our Daily Bread designs blog
,
leave a comment telling us that you completed the hop
and answer the question there.

Thanks for stopping!
