Video Tutorial: Creating a Scene with Your Next Stamp and Distress Oxide Inks

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday!  I'm a bit behind posting this week due to an awful sinus infection, but I'm finally starting to feel better :)  It has been my honor to guest design for Your Next Stamp this month.  I have loved this month's release and I have another card and video to share today.  Here's today's card:


For my card today, I used this adorable image from the Got mud? stamp set from Your Next Stamp.  I stamped the image with Hero Arts Black Dye ink and then colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I used Red, Gray, Blue Gray, and Peacock Blue as well as a water brush.  I then cut the image out free hand with my scissors (although there are some adorable coordinating dies available HERE).  I created my sky background using Distress Oxide inks and a blending tool and some water.  I used two colors of inks, Faded Jeans and Broken China.  I then spritzed some water and dabbed it with a paper towel to create the distress look.  I created my scene using some dies from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the sentiment, also from the Got mud? stamp set from Your Next Stamp, and then embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it some shine against the background.  I then added some of the new Frosted Fun Gumdrops for a finishing touch.  Here's my video tutorial showing how I created this card:


Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Make sure to  leave me a comment here by Saturday, May 20 at 9pm EST and I will pick a winner of this fabulous brand new Got Mud? stamp set!!!!  Hugs!

Great background Christine. You have inspired me to pick up more distress inks...the 2 I own beige and beige just won't do and I really like the water splotch effect. Thanks so much for being a guest for the new release!!!
