He Will Be Our Peace

Today I'm sharing a bright and cheery card I created using distress oxide ink. I had fun experimenting with the colors and trying a crinkled background technique.

Side Note: I wanted to put a plug in for my favorite Etsy store.
If you're a crafter that enjoys finding good deals and awesome products
for less $$ - you'll want to check out  PerriAnnsArtsNThings.
I've been ordering from them for quite a while now,
and they always go above and beyond!
I purchased both of the stamps used on this card there.

To create the background for this card I:
  • dabbed some Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey Distress Oxide on my desk
  • spritzed the ink with water
  • swiped a piece of white card stock through the ink
  • heat set and repeated till I got the colors how I liked them
  • on the last swipe (BEFORE I heat set) I balled the paper up in a tight ball to create wrinkles and texture 
    • unfold and heat set
    • use a brayer to flatten the paper out a bit before adhering it to your cardfront  
Supplies and Tools:
Dies/Punches: Oval Dies, Monarch Butterfly Punch (Martha Stewart), Tiny Butterfly Punch (Marvy)
Inks: Worn Lipstick/Wild Honey Distress Oxide, Versamark Watermark, Midnight Black Embossing Powder
Stamps: Bible Journaling Stamps (American Crafts), Chrysanthemum Flower (Cottage Cutz)

Lovely card and possibly without realising you also have layers and lemon on there. I like the way you created your crinkled background.
Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel for this challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

Such a pretty background and neat technique, your flowers look great against it and love the butterfly border inside!

What a fun background, I haven't done this one in a really long time so I think maybe you have inspired me. Very pretty card.
