ODBD My Soul Thirsts Stamp Set
Early this week, I prepared a card in response to a Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge. Peggy (pegmac71), the challenge host, brought to us beautiful colors for the Color Challenge, CC588 – A Perfect Smoky Pirouette. The colors she selected are SU Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, and Smoky Slate. These are beautiful colors together.
I used two stamp sets on the card: ODBD My Soul Thirsts Stamp Set, and Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms Stamp Set. I love the Psalm 42:2 verse included on the card, which is from the ODBD My Soul Thirsts Stamp Set.
For my card, I used several copic sketch markers that are close to the selected colors to color the floral image on the card, which is from the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms Stamp Set. I blended both the pink and plum copic colors on the flowers’ petals and a gray on the leaves. I had not blended the pink and plum copic colors before, and I must say I like the outcome. This photo provides a closeup of the image.
JUNE 26, 2016 UPDATE: Card was included in Splitcoaststampers Favorites of the Week.
I must say that I’m enjoying more and more the use of the copic sketch markers. Learning to create shading and blending takes some time, but it’s worth it.
At the top left of the card (see above photo), I modified a Spellbinders Die to create a corner piece. I felt the card needed that additional touch.
Enjoy the card and thanks for your comments!

“When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.” John 16:8-11
