Spring Birthday - Distress Oxides
Hi, today I have a card to share with you that I created
following the sketch this week at
Here is the sketch.
I thought this looked like a fun sketch to create.
I love to create my own background paper using various mediums
and lately, I got the urge to place with my Distress Oxides.
So using some Bristol paper I made a piece of paper using Oxides
in Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Wilted Violet.
I love this combination of colors. I made a larger piece so that I could
just cut off a panel for this card but still have the rest of the paper to use on another card.
The colors reminded me of Easter but I didn't want to make an Easter
card because I probably would not use it as I don't send out
The purple edge I made using one of my Fiskars punches. The purple
circle is a Unity stamp that I stamped using Catherine Pooler
ink Sweet Sixteen and then hand cut it out. The sentiment is
also a Unity stamp. Cp inks are the greatest.
The butterfly is from Stampin up that
is a 3 step stamp, so I used the same colors as I used on the panel.
Well I am just getting this one in under the wire at
MFT Sketch Challenge so I better get this posted.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
