Hi, friends, Chark here today and I’m sharing this Easter Birthday card I made with a digital stamp and the Nesting Oval Infinity Dies for the eggs. I have four of the Distress Oxide inks and I spent the whole day and part of the next playing with them.
First I used Squeezed Lemonade smooshed on the nonstick craft sheet and spritzed with water and dragged the card through it. Then I did the same technique using Mermaid Lagoon and a little Faded Jeans and cut a large oval. Then I added the sentiment in Faded Jeans oxide ink. They stamp beautifully too.
I created the Easter eggs by laying the stencil down and then pressing the Oxide inks (Worn Lipstick and Faded Jeans) through the stencil with a makeup sponge. Then I spritzed with water while the stencil was still in place.
I removed the stencil and let them dry. Then I used the regular Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio to paint the white parts the stencil left. I just put the ink on the nonstick mat and used a wet brush to apply.
I cut them out with the smaller ovals in the Infinity Die set to seem egg-sized.
Lastly, I printed the butterflies out and then dragged them through Oxide inks on the nonstick mat to color. I didn’t spritz them with water afterward like I did the eggs.
That’s it! I had fun making paper Easter Eggs for this card and trying out the Oxide inks with the regular Distress Inks…they play well together!
Hope you join in our new monthly challenge here.
