Birthday Card using both Tim Holtz Distress Oxide and Distress Ink

Hello! I made this card for my 7-year old's classmate who is celebrating her birthday today. Ryan's theme for this card is flowers. His friend's favorite colors are purple, blue and green. Ryan chose the Ellen Hutson Bold Blossom stamp set.

I will be overlapping some of the images so I utilized Kristina Werner's stamp map technique. It helped in planning out the order of stamping, placement and which images need to be masked. 

I am using a Bazzill Taffy cardstock for the stamping panel, cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I stamped the large sized flower using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Shaded Lilac. I heat set this to speed the drying process before I covered the flower with a mask. I stamped the small flower stamp using THDO Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass. I heat set this as well and covered it with a mask. I then stamped the leaves using THDO Peeled Paint. 

Removing the masks is such a joy because the reveal is always amazing. I blended inks on the stamped images using the Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink versions of the colors I used for the flowers. You can see the difference of the opacity of both inks making it hard to choose one ink over the other. I just got to have both!

I heat embossed the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossing powder. The stamp is from Simon Say Stamp Jumbo Stripes stamp set. 

I die cut this panel using Mama Elephant Peek A Frame Creative Cuts. To matte this panel, I die cut a Stampin' Up Purple cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Wafer Dies. 

I added Pretty Pink Posh Jewels. I also added Nuvo Aqua Flow Shimmer Brush Glitter Gloss to the flowers. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
