Happy June, friends! The June release from Our Daily Bread Designs is perfectly focused on the themes of the month - Father's Day and Sunshne!
I am really enjoying the muted tones of the Vintage Ephemera Collection paper and it co-ordinates so perfectly with the gorgeous masculine stamps and dies released this month.
This verse is one of my husband's favourites, so I was thrilled to see it in this release. I have plans for the rest of the sentiments in the Good Man set of stamps.
These darling Workshop Tool dies are simply divine!! I have cut them out of neutral cardstock, which I coloured using a silver paint pen. I ran the hammer and screwdriver dies through using blue for the handles, cut the handle portion off and aged it using copic markers to colour. I tied the little tool bundle together with hemp twine.
This Sunshine themed collection is a very fun release from ODBD. While this background has the appearance of an embossing folder, it is a metal die template and it does beautiful work cutting, piercing and embossing all at the same time.
I used red, orange and yellow glitter spray on a paintbrush to create the splatter pattern on the background. Once I loaded the paintbrush with glitter spray, I tapped the brush on my finger so the spray pattern would have a larger drip pattern.
I sponged the sentiment while in a basic rectangle die template to really draw attention to this lovely sentiment. I've used an adhesive rhinestone to embellish this wee sun. So fun!!
