#681 – Winnie & Walter WCMD Celebrations (4)

Hello! And here’s the last of the cards I made for the Winnie & Walter WCMD Celebrations!

Winnie & Walter - WCMD 2017

I made this card when I was making the cards here, and thought of making use of the beautiful layering effect that distress oxide inks can bring about.


I first created a layer of yellow-orange using distress oxide inks and ink smooshing technique. When this dried, I embossed the flowers and leaves from In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet. I then added another layer of color using distress inks of teal-blue colors this time. Finally came the layer of sentiment – I used gold embossing, with the stamps from The Big, The Bold and Party. I also added a few details on the flowers and leaves, and a few scattered dots here and there, and also heat embossed those.

I then trimmed the panel, and mounted it on the card base, on which I had already adhered Brustro Iridescent gold metallic paper, for a little shiny gold – a good compliment to the gold embossing.

I am joining the following challenges – Lovely Layers challenge with Keren and Smooshing challenge with Lydia.

Thank you so much for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  1. Beautiful! I will have to try this, as I thought distress oxide inks wouldn’t perform such good coverage over the bright colors in the background. Although I know they are quite opaque, I was expecting colors to blend each other a bit… surprise, surprise, I can’t see any of the yellow/orange bg!
