Good morning! I’m back today for the weekly Monday feature for me here on the Unity Stamp Company Blog! So happy to be featuring the AMAZING Unity Kit of the Month set on Mondays here on the blog. These kits are always AMAZING, and they hold a special place in my heart since they were the first thing I purchased from Unity, and what got me hooked on Unity to begin with. Who DOESN’T love getting a happy package of stamps in the mail every month, right? And these kits just keep getting better and better. You can read all the details and info to sign up HERE, and see this month’s kit as well.
Today I have a slimline card to share – with a fun background technique using Distress Oxide inks and white acrylic paint!
Here is the video for today’s card:
The background was created by blending some distress oxide inks on a panel of white cardstock, then dabbing white paint along the transition point for a soft layered look.
You can see more in the video – but I did learn that it would be preferred to stamp with Stazon ink so that it wouldn’t be as likely to smear where it is stamped over the shiny surface of the paint. Distress oxides were not the ideal choice, since they ended up smearing a bit on my finished card.
I hear embossed the sentiment in white on black cardstock, then trimmed it down and mounted it with foam adhesive in the center of the stamped images. A few sparkly white jewels cover up the main smear on the fence, and add a good bit of sparkle on the card as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see you back here next week – have a wonderful week!
