Blessings in a Bottle - Our Daily Bread Designs

This month at Our Daily Bread Designs we are having fun with a wonderful new release! I will be sharing male card ideas throughout the month, not only for Father's Day but for every occasion! This week there's a Color Challenge for your inspiration. Here's what I created:

ODBD stamps used: Good Man, Apothecary Bottles / ODBD dies used: Flourished Star Pattern Die / ODBD paper used: Vintage Ephemera Collection

I used three different sheets from the new vintage papers. The labels I added to the stamped bottles were cut from one of the sheets. I like how the papers coordinate, and I also like how well they look on male cards. I colored the bottles with alcohol markers and added a few embellishments to finish the design.

I have a close-up video for June's release that I'm adding below. I invite you to check it out. I'm sharing other ODBD products on the video also!

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
