Sunday card share #85 – You’re awesome

Card Making cardmaking distress oxide inks Inspiration Masculine card Sunday Card Share

Sunday card share at scrapbooknerd.com

Hey there everyone,
I’m happy to be back sharing another card with you today and as you can probably tell, I’ve been working with Distress Oxide Inks again. I just really like making my own coloured backgrounds.

The colour combination I used for this card is Broken China, Iced Spruce, and Faded Jeans and I thought they would be great for a masculine card.
I used a blending tool to apply the inks to the watercolour paper until I was happy with the look, I then misted the card front with water and dried it with my heat tool. I applied another layer of ink blending and then flicked water onto the panel to get some bigger water marks, I then left it dry. 

I wanted there to be some silver on this card somewhere so I ended up adding some Clear Wink of Stella to the black die-cut star. I punched two circles from some scraps of pattern paper to layer underneath the robot…it really needed another punch of colour.

I used my vintage typewriter for my sentiment, which I found on a search on Google, it’s a favourite go to of mine when I don’t have the right sentiment stamp. I finished off the card with some enamel shapes and a black cardstock A2 size card base.
I refer to this style of card as ‘scrappy cards’ because I use scrapbooking supplies to make them and there is usually no stamping required. I get a bit inky while making the background and I use up embellishments and paper scraps that have been sitting in my stash for a while.

See you next Sunday!
