I am at the end of my five day ODBD week and I have one more project to show you!
I used images from the new release Mother Teresa and my three ODBD ink pads for this project as well: Spring Green, Sunflower and Raspberry.
I stamped my lotus flower with VersaFine Onyx Black and then watercolored using an Aqua-Flo brush.
I love the Wild Raspberry paper from K & Co. It goes so well with these colors and images. I added Angel Wings Shimmerz to the middle of the flower and on the water. Here is a close-up that shows that (click for an ever closer view!). Shimmerz is 25% off through tomorrow!
The quote says "I know that God will not give me anything I can't handle; I just wish that He didn't trust me so much." This Mother Teresa quote is probably my favorite in the whole set -- it just seems to fit life right now for a lot of people! I think it also shows Mother Teresa's sense of humor - and we certainly need a lot of humor to get through a lot of life's bumps and hills and obstacles!
The frame around the lotus was actually a mistake! I was cutting out the frame with my Nestabilities and it didn't quite cut. I couldn't re-do it, as the paper came out of the metal frame. So it is what it is, and I ended up liking it embossed!
Thanks for sharing this release week with me! I hope you will join in the Guest Designer contest that ODBD is having this week! You can read about that HERE!
Thanks for coming by!
