Hello there, today I have a card to share using the gorgeous Elizabeth Background that I picked up in my latest haul from Simon Says Stamp. It's such a stunning stamp and perfect for emboss resist which I have done today. I decided to have a play with the new Distress Oxide inks too.
I started off by taking a sheet of watercolour paper and stamped the Elizabeth Background stamp on to it using Versamark ink. I applied clear embossing powder and then heat set. Using an ink blending tool, I blended over Distress Oxide Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and a little Faded Jeans. I then spritzed over some water and heat set. Once dry I cut this down using a Stitched Rectangle Die.
I die cut the 'you' die three times from black cardstock and layered these up. I then stamped the sentiment from the You Matter stamp set on to a piece of white cardstock with black ink. This was then cut in to a strip. The background piece was added to a white A2 card base with ATG and then the You die cut added on top, along with the sentiment strip. To finish off, I added a few Moonshine and Sparkling Clear sequins, and a coating of Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen on the 'you'.

I love the finish on the Distress Oxide Inks. They have a nice chalky, silk like finish which is really pretty! They did blend really well on the paper too. I love the colour combination I used here. Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great day and a great rest of the week!
