Hello and welcome...

We have sunshine today and it reminded me of this card that I'd made when my Distress Oxide Inks first arrived!

The finished card is 6"x8" and I added a black panel and a smaller white panel and on this panel I stamped 3 lillies  with a Versa Mark Watermark Stamp Pad

At the bottom of the panel I then stamped the sentiment using a Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad.  I covered the sentiment then the flowers with  WOW CLEAR Embossing Powder and heat set.  If you immediately cover your stamped sentiment with a clear embossing powder you are able to colour over it without any colour change to it, then give it a little polish with some paper towel

I used 4 oxide inks on the background then spritzed water over the full panel and this particular time I dried it with my heat tool.  I was then getting a little 'carried away' with the colours, or enjoying myself too much and added yet more colour and spritzed again as well as heat drying it.  I added red line double sided tape to the back of it, adhered to the black then both onto the base card

To complete I randomly added several dots of NuVo Crystal Drops

  • white card stock ~ Papermill Direct
  • black card stock ~ Creative Expressions
  • distress oxide inks/broken china, fired brick, fossilized amber, worn lipstick ~ Ranger
  • VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad ~ Tsukineko
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad ~ Tsukineko
  • clear embossing powder ~ WOW
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops 'Morning Dew' ~ Tonic Studios UK
  • red line tape ~ Woodware
Tomorrow's post will be available at 11am along with the winner of yesterday's card
