Hi everyone and a happy Saturday to you! I had a nice day with Daniel and Tristan. Daniel had picture day at school so I made sure that he looked all spiffy before he left! Last night I went over to Jim’s for dinner, he made homemade pizzas and they were delicious! Not sure what I’m up to today but I’m going to see if I can squeeze in some crafty time! 😀
I was playing around the other day with Distress Oxides and and made two backgrounds, one on Solar White 80lb and another on Bristol Smooth. I ended up using the one on the Bristol Smooth to make a card. I noticed that they have a background challenge over on the TGIF Challenge and I think this card fits the bill!
Here are are the two backgrounds side by side, the one on the left is Solar White 80lb and the one on the left is Bristol Smooth…
I made them by using my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. To get the spots I flicked some water onto the panels and then dried them off with a paper towel. For my greeting I used the Concord & 9th Hearts & Love Dies to cut out a piece of Super Gold Curious Metallic and Gold Metallic Vellum. The thin love is adhered to the outline with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to the card with Kool-Tank Clear Foam Tape. The hearts are adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. Super simple card but I do love those Distress Oxide Inks for making a quick and fabulous background! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the TGIF Challenge! Thanks for spending some of your Saturday with me! 🙂

Love the simplicity of your card, and the die is to die for 🙂 ! Thanks for sharing the comparison of the two card stocks you tried – interesting.
Thank you Carol! It is a really fun die! I keep seeing people use the inks on different surface and had to see for myself! Hope you are enjoying your weekend! 🙂
You picked my favorite colors of all time!! Your blended background is totally awesome and I like how you shared the paper comparison. Thanks for joining along at TGIF this week and for “creating your own background” with us. Smiles, Elizabeth
