Addicted To Stamps And More #338...

Hi! Another fun challenge is up on the Addicted To Stamps And More challenge blog. This week the theme is:

I tried out a new technique with distress oxide inks.

I started with a piece of white cardstock. I blended Twisted Citron, Peacock feathers and Salty Ocean distress oxide inks on it to create a background. Once it was dry, I mounted the Emma background stamp on my stamp positioner and inked it with Blue Jeans distress oxide ink. I lightly spritzed with water and then stamped. Here is a closer look at the stamping.

To finish the card, I trimmed the panel and mounted it on a black card base with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with pale blue embossing powder on a scrap of black paper. I trimmed the panel and popped it up on foam tape. Here is a look at the completed card.

I am very happy with the way this card turned out. The light spritz of water makes the ink glow, giving the card a lovely look. I hope you are inspired by my card and create something beautiful. You can link up your creations in at the Addicted To Stamps And More gallery. There is also plenty of beautiful inspiration from my talented teammates.
