Howdy it’s Karen with my first post as an a2z Scrapbooking design team member. This is also my first time being on a design team. I am excited to be part of the team and share some cards with you.
For the background of my card I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade.
The grass is stamped many times with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink. The grass stamp is from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero June 2017 set along with the safari animals. This set is no longer available but you can get the Safari Huge Thanks clear stamp set in the a2z Scrapbooking Store that has all the animals and the tree that are on my card. The animals, birds and tree are all stamped using Distress Oxide ink Gathered Twigs.
For the frames I used Hero Arts Nested Frame Cuts Ovals to cut them. The inner frame is just some brown paper. For the top frame I first stamped the sentiment on a piece of yellow paper using Hero Arts set It’s Your Day and heat embossed it with brown embossing powder. I had to go over that at the end with a black Copic marker to make it stand out a little more. Then I stamped with the Hero Arts background stamp Mud Cloth Bold Prints using Distress Oxide ink in Gathered Twigs. It needed a bit of fixing so I ink blended over it with Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade ink. I liked the look and went with it.
