Party Animals

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, everyone… it’s Holly here today. I hope your week is starting off good so far. Today I have a Fun card using products from Mama Elephant and an easy background you can create with Distress Inks.

I started with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and on the smooth side, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Make a Wish set in VersaFine Black ink. Then I heat embossed it with clear powder. This is a great way to heat emboss in Black if you don’t like the mess you get sometimes with Black powder.

I smooshed some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water using the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer. Then using an acetate sheet I picked up the ink and smooshed it all over the background. This is a very easy way to start creating backgrounds with Distress and it will work with both the Regular Distress and the Oxides. I let it air dry and then I added a few splatters of water and lifted it with a paper towel.

I adhered the background to a top folding A2 size card base and then I stamped all the images from the Mama Elephant Party Animals set onto some X-press it blending cardstock with some Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I colored the images in with Copics in the following colors: C3, C1, C00, Y11, Y15, Y17, Y26, YR18, RV02, RV04, RV06, E21, E23 and E27. I used the coordinating creative cuts to cut them out and adhered them to the bottom with foam tape.

You can see how I created this card in the Video below…

Have you been creating with the new Distress Oxides ink lately? Leave a comment below, I’d love to hear how you’ve been using them.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

    Your card design is lovely and great way for the bold sentiment to stand out with the clear embossing powder. I love the new distress oxide inks, such great texture. The ink can be used just to stamp images and the results are beautiful, I love it!!!!
