ODBDSLC114... Anything Goes!!

Hello, friends!!!  Saturday has arrived and that means time for another ODBD Shining the Light challenge.  I have a little announcement to make before I get to this week's challenge.  This is the last Saturday for the Shining the Light challenge.  Starting on July 3rd, the Shining the Light challenge will be moving to Tuesday.  All the details can be found here.  This is also Debi Southard's final post for the challenge team.  Debi is moving back over to the design team.

As my post title says this week's challenge is "anything goes" meaning we want to see any kind of project using ODBD stamps.  How fun is that??   I stuck to the tried and true:  a card.   Earlier this week I had spent some time working on my project for my Time With Post (found here) and since I was getting inky I decided to use my new acquired ODBD Honeycomb background stamp to do some emboss/resist.  I stamped the background using VersaMark ink, applied the embossing powder and heat set it.  I then inked up the image using Ranger's Squeezed Lemonade and Scattered Straw inks. I then trimmed the piece to fit my card front. I then stamped the oval from the ODBD Eternity, as well as the sentiment from the same set using Tuxedo Black ink.  The image was then die cut using the ODBD/Spellbinders Elegant Oval dies.  Some black double  stitched ribbon was tied around the background piece and a clock charm (thanks, Sabrina!) attached using some yellow baker's twine.  Finally I adhered the oval piece.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Friday, July 6th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. 

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants  for the  Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, July 6th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC114.  When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by...  please take some time to check out the beautiful projects created by my fellow "sticks" LoriJan MarieJanDebiKathy, Chris and Sabrina! To join in the fun, please click here.

This card is gorgeous! I didn't realize the honeycomb bg works without needing to have anything to do with bees or honey--so I'm adding it to my wishlist! Just love how this card came out, Rosemary!
