I am popping in to share a card I designed for The Card Concept's new challenge.
I jumped up and down and up and down when I got my Distress Oxides in the mail and I had a first initial play around with them. I'm planning to do a detailed tutorial sometime within the next week of all the various techniques and give a full review - so stay tuned!
I started by doing a sponging and spritzing Distress technique using Tumbled glass Distress Inks and Cracked Pistatchio Distress Oxide Inks.
I should probably have started by saying my colors were pulled from the inspiration image for The Card Concept's new challenge. Isn't it puuuurty?
I also loved the style lines in that image, so I wanted to do a curved blue in the background of my card.
Next, I created a mixture of greens and amber and used a die cut to create teeny daisies. I stamped and watercolored a jar using the STAMPlorations VIGNETTE: Eclectic Florals set and then I glued and put things together.
The sentiment is from my Strong Women stamp set. As you can see, I also used a die cut from Stampin' Up to create a die cut in the background, too.
I'm going to link this up to:
