AH 392 - Hello Friend Distress Oxide Background Card

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #392!

I decided to rotate the sketch to create a portrait card instead of a landscape card. I chose to create my own background for my card using Distress Oxide Inks and Stickles Glitter Gel. I began by using three colours of Distress Oxide inks to create my background. I then placed a stencil on top of that and covered the cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. I then covered the cardstock with Moondust Stickles Glitter Gel with the stencil still in place. I think that the Moondust Glitter Gel took on a dark colour due to the black ink still being wet. 

When the background was dry, I trimmed it to the size I wanted. The card base is Charcoal cardstock and there is a stitched rectangle mounted on top of that with craft foam. Keeping with the stitched theme, I die cut two stitched rectangles - one for the sentiment and one for the frame. I stamped a sentiment on the Glacier piece and added two thin pieces of cardstock as per the sketch. Finally, I added a silver bow and some sparkles around the sentiment.

  1. Wow, that background looks amazing! I (you, too, probably) have so many Stickles, this would definitely be an awesome way to use some up! Pinning! XOX
