For my first card…

I used the new Daisy Daisy stencil along with Mesh It Up.


I started with a gel press print that I had created with Distress Oxides and paint. Originally it wasn’t anything too great, but then I added embossing ink with my blending tool to the Mesh It Up stencil, and sprinkled WOW! Bahama embossing powder on it.


I love the chunky texture both the stencil and the embossing powder give the panel.

I then took some Bristol Smooth paper and the Daisy Daisy stencil and blended Distress Oxides in  Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Marmalade.


I cut the outline of the stencil out and stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Soul stamp set in black on the daisy.

For my second card..

I used the same Daisy Daisy stencil but on a panel I created with Distress Oxide reinkers on photo paper.


For more information on how to create the background check out my blog post here.

I then used the stencil and applied Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide lightly around the stencil with a blending brush.


I stamped the butterflies from the Wings of Change set in Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide. I also used the sentiment and stamped it in black archival ink.

I love the grungy but bright look the distress oxides have on the photopaper and the different layers.
