Distress Ink Cards

Hello everyone, I have two cards to share with you today, showcasing the Spring Fairy Collection stamp plates, which were featured on the recent TV Shows on Hochanda. My cards both started off in the same way, with a Distress Oxide Ink background, and I then chose which stamps I wanted to use to complete the cards.

For the first card, I decided to create a very clean and simple style card, choosing fresh blues and greens for the background. I stamped the little bird image onto the card, using Potting Shed Archival Ink, and then I masked the bird itself, before adding extra stamping using the foliage part of the same stamp repeatedly across the bottom of the card.

I added some colour to the images with Zig Clean Colour markers. I added a sentiment from the Words to Dazzle and Sparkle stamp set, using the same ink as before, and edged the background with the ink as well, before adhering the background to a large card blank. I love this little bird stamp, it can be used for so many different occasions, and is great for masculine cards as well.

For my second card, I chose a selection of images from the Spring Foliage, and Silhouette Grasses stamp plates, and using a selection of ink colours, I built up a scene on my Distress Ink background. I stuck to a palette of greens and purples, creating a tone on tone effect. I added a silhoueete fairy and butterfly from the Spring Fairy Collection, plus the large 'Spring' from the stamp plate. Finally, I added some sparkle to the wings using a clear Wink of Stella pen.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

I can see why you love that little bird stamp, you've used it beautifully here using the masking technique to get the abundance of foliage in place. I love how you've utilised the way that the ink spread to place the bird below the droplets & then used similar colours to the background for the bird - that really gives the effect of a camouflaged bird in its environment.
Your fairy scene really is magical & is so effective with the framing top & bottom using different types of foliage. I love the tone on tone effect & your use of the colour wheel to maximum effect with your choice of the colours. Enchanting!!!
