Miss You Cards, Thinking Of You Cards

I Think About You All The Time

Hi there, I hope you’re doing well.

I have a one-layer card for you today, a card that I worked on during an Instagram live.  During the live, we wondered whether or not blending Distress Oxide inks and regular Distress inks together would work.  Sure enough, it did.

I started with an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and four colors of ink:

  • Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink
  • Ripe Persimmon Distress ink
  • Festive Berries Dstress Oxide ink
  • Seedless preserves Distress ink

Using foam blending tools, I blended the inks onto the panel from light to dark.  I blended two colors together where they met, alternating back and forth between each color to build up the ink on the panel and to get a nice blend.  I found that these four colors blend together really well, despite the different formulations of inks.

When the panel was dry, I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink to stamp a silhouette image from the Simon Says Stamp Wildflowers stamp set, and a sentiment from the Miss You Missy stamp set, also from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks so much for coming by!

  1. Gorgeous card, and I so appreciate the “report out ” on your findings as I have different colors in my oxides vs distressed and hadn’t thought to be able to combine the two.
