ODBD119 Sponging

I am back for the second week as the August Guest Designer the Shining Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs - thank you to everyone for all of your lovely comments on last weeks card - it is such a blessing!  I am having such a great time with these stamps.

This week's challenge: Use sponging on your creation

I have used the Our Daily Bread Designs Time set.  The clock face us cut out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Standard Circles LG Nestabilities and sponged the image using various shades of ink.

and adding Epoxy Circles into the 'workings' of the clock, along with a brass brad to the center.


The sentiment has been stamped onto a Die from the Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags One Shapeabilities, I have snipped off some of the ornate ends to make it slightly more masculine, finishing off with an Old Gold Brad and a cog.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, August 19 at 8 p.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 Sunday, August 19 at 8 p.m. EST.
