Some time ago, I had made a bunch of backgrounds with Distress Oxides. I was just having so much fun playing with them, that I just played with the inks for a while, just covering sheets of cardstock to use at a later date. This is one of the backgrounds I had made. To be honest, I don’t recall all of the Distress Oxides that are on this, but there is certainly Wilted Violet and Antique Linen. There’s a blue shade too….I think it’s Faded Jeans. Anyway, I go through these backgrounds from time to time to see what I am inspired to work with and this one screamed Lilac Lustre to me.
I went through my stamps, knowing I didn’t want something too thick and heavy that would cover up the background, and I came across Stampendous’ Filly Sketch stamp. It was just what I needed. Light, airy, and a little messy. I stamped the filly on with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black. Then I added the sequins with On Point Glue. My card base is gray, and I used a metallic marker from Spectrum Noir around the edge to tie in the lustre of the sequins.
That’s it for me today. I’ll have a really fun shaker to share with you soon. I can’t wait for you to see it. Don’t forget that all Sparkle Blends are limited edition, and are only available from White Rose Crafts LLC. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
