Good morning everyone!


It is time for ODBD's Stamping In Time! This week we have a challenge host, Marcelle Schauer. Marcelle is giving us challenge choices! We can choose either to use brads or colored pencils. Now, if you are feeling a little adventurous, you can do both! Both are items that you may not  use very often. So we hope you will dig them out and play along!

Please see ODBD's Blog for all the details!

Here is my creation for todays SNTODBD8 Challenge!



The images are ODBD's With Heartfelt Sympathy and With Deepest Sympathy! I colored them using Prisma Colored Pencils and Oderless Mineral Spirits!  The wood frame was cut using Spellbinders Nestibillities using Real Wood Paper. The bottom layer was cuttlebugged and then sanded!

For more inspiration, please check out the other designer’s blogs to see what they created with the brads and/or pencil choice challenge!

Connie

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you will play along! Have a marvelous day!
