This card started as a messy experiment with Distress Oxides, a water spray and Pixie Power which turned into a very beautiful card with what my husband calls a “cosmic background”.
I started by splodging Wilted Violet and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink Pads onto a non-porous craft mat, spritzed with a water spray and then dipped 2 sheets of white card into the inky puddles. If you are not happy with your first attempt you can redistribute the colour by dabbing a piece of kitchen towel and re-dipping the card. Whilst the card was still wet I sprinkled it with Purple Violet Pixie Powder and spritzed with water where needed to activate and spread the powder. Once I was happy with the colour I dried the card with a heat gun but you can leave the card to dry naturally if you have the patience.
I cut one piece of card to approximately 6″ x 6″onto and stamped the Have a Wonderful Day sentiment in the centre using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I then matted a layered this card with black card.
I stamped the Butterflies and Flowers Corner Stamp multiple times onto the second piece of card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I then die cut one of the images using the Butterflies and Flowers Corner Die taking care to line up the die with the stamped image and securing the die with low tack tape before running through my die cutting machine. I cut out the remaining flowers from the stamped images by hand and then gently moulded them by pressing a flower shaping tool into the centre with the flower on a foam mat.
I then attached the die cut corner using silicone glue to give it dimension and used the glue to layer the shaped flowers before attaching AB gems with tacky glue.
