Are you ready......

my stamping friends for yet another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge? Well, today marks #11 and it will be a good one ;D.

This weeks challenge is to make a Mother's Day card or project!!! Since next weekend is 1.May and the ODBD New Release Hop will take place, the Shining the Light Challenge will last for two weeks. This will give you lots of time to come up with something awesome!!!

As always, we would like to make this challenge a little more fun and so we are giving away a $ 15.00 gift certificate from the ODBD store and to be used towards stamps from the ODBD store!!! Have you been over to the store lately, Kelley has an ever growing selecting of absolutely awesome stamps ;D!!! Entries for this gift certificate prize MUST be submitted by Thursday 6. May 2010!!! One random winner will be chosen and announced on Saturday 8.May 2010, remember this is a 2 week challenge!!! While it is not necessary to use ODBD stamps we highly encourage you to use them if you have them!!


As a way of recognizing those of you who do, we will pick 1 or 2 creations to spotlight and award our Shining the Light Award to. So, if you decide to use your ODBD stamps please make sure that your creation is submitted to the ODBD Blog and added to Mr. Linky no later than 8 p.m.EST on Thursday, 6. May 2010!!!!

If you upload your creation to an online gallery like Splitcoast Stampers or such, please make sure you'll use the keyword ODBDSLC11 . When creating your post for your blog, please make sure you include a link to the challenge.

Now, are you ready for my creation? I made another Mother's day card and used a medium I have not used in a while.....my watercolor pencils. Wow, I almost forgot how much fun it is to color with watercolors. For my image I chose the Mother's Day set called "MOM" which was released at the beginning of the month.



Have a look

Mom





Recipe:


Paper:PTI White, Bazzill textured moss, Basic Grey Porcelain, watercolor paper





Stamps: ODBD Mom





Ink: StazOn black, VersaFine Onyx Black, watercolor pencils,





Accessories: Nesties Petite Ovals Large, Petite Scalloped Ovals Large, Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Blender pen, Shimmerz Paint in Angel Wingz, Maya Road Vintage Pearl stick pin, silver heart button, Recollections half pearls, May Art super soft ivory colored ribbon, MayArts white crochet lace ribbon, foam tape, 3D foam dots



See, super easy. I also have a close-up picture so you can see the Shimmerz paint on that main big flower better






I just love the way the Shimmerz paint makes this flower pop.

Did you get some inspiration from my card or are you in for some more? My Challenge Team sisters have created masterpiece and they sure will give you that last little kick to get out your stamps and creating ;D, but before I give you the links to their blogs I'd love to hear what you think about my card.
