It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge On Assignment(SNTODBD10)! Silke Ledlow is our challenge host this month! Silke is challenging us with a sketch! It is a high and low card or tall and thin. Your choice! However, it is not an A2 or a square card sketch! Good luck and have fun with it! Check out the ODBD blog link to find out how to play along for a chance to win!



For my card, I chose to go with a 5 X 7 size design.  I am using ODBD Keep My Lamp Burning stamp set.  I am using the colors from the Color Q Challenge(cQc#33)!  For the record, I had a hard time with these colors.  I wanted to make a manly card to comply with the Cards for Men Challenge #10 with an "outdoor" theme.  I really think these colors lend themselves to manly looks and outdoors.  I am not sure which color gave me the hardest time, though.  Maybe it was just that there were four.  LOL!  It is a challenge, though!  Actually, it could be that it is just a manly card that makes it tough.  Always need to stretch my horizons with those.

To keep the sketch from getting too busy for me with the four colors, I opted to keep the panels in the same color with just a hint of soft suede showing.  I also decided to use the same cb ef on them as well. I stamped my image using soft suede and sponged the sun and backgrounds.  I cut out an additional lighthouse to adhere over the top for added dimension.  I thought it needed something else so I added Ranger Crackle Accents and let it dry.  This stuff is amazing and cracks on its on.  Once it is dry and cracked I added a little bit of soft suede over it to seep into the cracked pores a bit to highlight those.  It is really cool to see how it looks from start to finish.  Once my card was complete I added some gold pearls.  I backed a few with my 1/4" square punch to look a bit more manly and to ground them.  I added my scripture tag.  I was thrilled that the scripture fit this punch.  I added a bit of linen thread and sponged the edges.  I like how it turned out.   Now, as for the man part of the card, I really wanted to put a flower or big bow on it! Go figure!
