my favorite set...

Welcome to day four of the Our Daily Bread Designs Anniversary celebration.  Todays challenge is to use your favorite ODBD stamp set to make a project.  For my card I used my all time favorite stamp set "Keep My Lamp Burning". For all the details on the challenge pop over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog.  As with the other challenges this week there will be a prize for a randomly drawn entry AND several of the design team members have hidden blog candy so you want to make sure you visit all of the participating members blogs and leave a comment for your chance to win. 

For my card I stamped the lighthouse image in Versafine black then embossed the image with clear embossing powder.  I colored the light with a yellow marker then masked the image and sponged with a couple of different colors of distress ink, removed the mask and sponged some more.  I distressed most of the layers of card stock and added some sewn details, hemp and a silver wheel charm.
So join us and play along then make sure you pop over to all the team members blogs and see what they did with their favorite sets.  Remember that several of them have blog candy in the offering.

What I used:
ODBD Keep My Lamp Burning
GP white, SU creamy caramel, chocolate chip, crushed curry, riding hood red
Gartner Studios Bon Voyage Map designer paper
Versafine Black, Tim Holtz distress ink antique linen and tea dye
clear embossing powder
SU marker
hemp, wheel charm
sponges
silver brad
