Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!
If you haven’t yet tried using Distress Oxide inks, you’re missing out on some real stamping fun. I used it to create the background on this card, which you can see in full below. I applied broken china ink to the cardstock, then misted a butterfly background stamp with water and stamped it, which reacted with the oxide ink to create this pattern. After stamping the tulip and embossing it with white embossing powder, I colored it with Distress inks (spun sugar, worn lipstick, twisted citron, shabby shutters, and antique linen). Then I added some shading with colored pencils. You can’t see the shimmer in this photo, but I added clear Wink of Stella glitter to the flower after cutting it out. I die cut three square frames from white cardstock, stacked them, and backed them with patterned paper (very old My Minds Eye).
