Day 2 of being the card captain in the
Enjoy Michael Strong group.
This card is also for the challenge
on the Simon Says Wednesday Blog.
The theme is: For the Boys.
My grandson loves wild animals
like lions and elephants. He is going to
school to learn to read and write after the
Summer, so I am keeping this for him.
I made the background with the direct to paper
technique and these two colors of distress oxide ink.
Start by adding the ink to the craft sheet
and spray a few drops of water on it.
Take the background panel and rub it over the craft
sheet to pick up the ink. You can do it a fewtimes until
you are satisfied with the result. Let the panel dry.
In the mean time I stamped the elephant (by Michael Strong)
in hickory smoke oxide distress ink.
Then cutting out the elephant and punching out
the printed sentiment.
Now that the panel is dry I stamped some flowers
on it that go with the elephant stamp set. For this
I used the hickory smoke oxide distress ink again.
After assembling the card I finished of with
a few black sequins.
The sentiment is by Create with TLC.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
