My Friend

     Hi friends!  This is week 2 of the Sponging or Stencil challenge at Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs.  Since last week I did sponging I decided to switch and try a stencil.    

 Our Daily Bread Designs, My Friend, Happy Birthday, Watering Can die, Pennant die, Christian Faith Collection, designer Linda Carson

     I started with a stencil I found at Hobby Lobby.  Embossing paste was colored with a couple drops of alcohol ink before applying to the card.  The same color was sprayed around the card using an air brush.
      The floral watering can is from the Happy Birthday set and has its own Watering Can die.  The watering can is sitting on top of banners using the Pennant die.  The sentiment is from My Friend set.  Papers are the Christian Faith Collection.
          You'll really want to see the beautiful inspirations from my design team sisters!
