ODBD Sketch

Remember my last post? I introduced to you ODBD's first ever Design Team Challenge! It really was my intention to show you my card for the challenge yesterday, but I never got it finished. Instead I spent most of the day putting away my Christmas decorations. Oh, I am SO glad that is done!
I've got to pick up Katie from school early today so I am going to try to be brief.

My card uses the one of 2 new releases from ODBD- "Lift up Your Hands". There is a lot of detail on this card that the picture just doesn't show so I'll give you a little bit of info. The main image panel is embossed with Artichoke ink on River Rock cardstock. But, I cut out the hands which were stamped in Artichoke on a separate vanilla piece of cardstock. I added a couple of layers of Glassy Glaze Enamel embossing powder to the hands and used several pop-dots under the image so it pops out.

The diamond layer has some paper-piercing on it using an Ornare template (you can find these at ODBD here.)
The sentiment is one line of a stamp from the "Lift Up Your Hands" set. You'll notice all 3 of the lines to this stamp can be used together OR separately. How cool is that? The flower is so pretty.

I've painted some Angel Wings Shimmerz on to the Prima. A word of warning- Make sure your lid is on tight after using your Shimmerz. Although your work surface looks so pretty after spilling an entire bottle onto it, when it's gone, it's gone! Yes, I spilled my Angel Wings Shimmerz so I will be buying another bottle very soon. I LOVE this stuff!
Remember, you are invited to join the design team and upload your own creation based on this sketch and using ODBD stamps!

You have until midnight (EST) on January 23 to post your card and let Kelley know by commenting on this post at the ODBD blog. You could win a bottle of Shimmerz just for playing! When posting on SCS please use keywords ODBDSC01 and ODBD so we can find your cards there.
Be sure to check out what the other design team members have done with this fabulous sketch!

Wish I could play along, but I don't have a single ODB stamp set yet. Can you believe that? I need to get in gear now that Jason is gone and I have more time to play!
