Distress Oxide Thanks
Good Morning Ladies,
It was so lovely reading how all of you met your partners yesterday, so many of have been married for so long. Although I did giggle at the thought of CU doing the 'Gay Gordon' 💃🕺! I'm sure he was very light on his feet back in the day. A lot of your stories were a lot more romantic that a chance meeting in Sainburys! Thank you for taking part my lovelies xx
Today's card was made as a bit of an experiment, I wanted to check out a super cheap stamp and die set that I bought from China, I was fully expecting the stamps not to take ink or to squish and not give a good impression when I used them but they didn't, I will say that I thought that they die wasn't going to fit over the sentiment properly to cut it out but it did it fine. I was very impressed for the price.
To make the background of the card I took the Stampin Up 'Hardwood' Background stamp and stamped it onto white card using Versamark ink, I then added clear Embossing Powder and heat set, I laid my background piece onto my glass mat and reached for my Distress Oxide inks, I used Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves inks and blended them together, I let it sit for a few minutes while I stamped and die cut my sentiment and then wiped over the background with a damp baby wipe to remove the excess ink off of the Embossed areas.,
I had a spare piece of card so I made another blended background in the same colours and used that to die cut some flowers, so that they matched the background. I die cut them, shaped them and added coloured gems to the centres. I arranged a few around my sentiment.
A little different but I kind of like it xxx
Not much planned today, just playing in my craft room hopefully, what have you all got planned?
Whatever you are doing today I hope you have a good day.
love and hugs to all
