ODBD August Release

Welcome to the August release from ODBD!  I hope your summer has been going great!  I can't believe it's already August but the heat here makes it very believable!  Last month, we saw some beautiful floral creations.  This month we are continuing the theme with some lovely birds.  I'm showcasing the Woodpecker set today as well as another stamp/die duo set (LOVE these!)

For my woodpecker card, I first stamped in black ink on watercolor paper with the MISTI.  After I watercolored it with my Koi set, I stamped it again in black to get some clear lines.  I used the new pierced rectangles to trim the image.  To balance my layout, I added the new Art Deco die against a sheet from the Cozy Quilt Collection.

For my second card, I clear embossed the butterflies from Trois Jolies Papillons and then sponged in my favorite combination of distress inks  Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, and Peacock Feathers.  I then added a black die cut from the Many Blessings stamp/die duo.  

I hope you have a chance to hop and comment for a chance to win!
