Hey Crafty People!
Today’s video is a really quick and simple ink blended background, because I was so happy to play with the newest Distress colour once I finally got my hands on it!!
Kitsch Flamingo, is a gorgeous pink and once I saw Tim Holtz’s reveal and swatch live I knew I needed it!
What surprised me though, was that the KF reveal live also convinced me that I needed another of the newer colours; Speckled Egg! When I saw the gorgeous blend Tim had got from these two colours I was obsessed with getting hold of it and trying myself! So that’s what I did!
I love the way these two colours blend, and I would never put them together normally! So, now I’m going to be trialling a bunch of different colours to see what other magical surprise blends that I find!
Once I had blended the panel I spritzed some water onto it for that fun oxidation spots look and set it aside whilst I die cut my sentiment.
In the same order as the two Oxides, I also ordered some new mirror cardstock from Tonic, because I love theirs! This one is called Tidal Wave, and I die cut the oversized Hello from Waffle Flower out of this Tidal Wave. I love the way it looks against the blended background!
I added some gorgeous holographic sequins from Little Things By Lucy’s Cards; they pick up on the colour underneath them so they look different on each side of the card which I think is really cool!
Please be aware:
As part of my Design Team and Guest Design work I do often receive free products to use, but I only ever recommend products that I genuinely love.
Also, I know how incredibly lucky I am to have these opportunities, but you don’t always NEED the newest products or the ‘full set’.
So please don’t feel that you need everything.
I like to show a variety of brands and products; this way; this way there will be something for everybody to enjoy.
