Hello! Kim here today, I love when I get to share what I’ve been up to on the blog.

I’ve been having fun playing with Distress Oxide inks, I ordered an entire set after seeing them at Creativation 2017 in January. They are easy to layer, emboss and stamp with. The icing on the cake is the magic that happens when you add a spritz or two of water to the mix!

Here is the fun Easter card I put together this past weekend.

I used some of my favourite Ranger/Tim Holtz products and an alpha die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

My background was created by adding layers of Distress Oxide ink to water colour paper. I dried each layer with my heat gun before adding the next layer to keep the colours separate.

I pounced a bit of the ink through a stencil for added interest as well as some text on the opposite corners. I quickly ironed my paper before adding it to black cardstock.

The dog was stamped with Distress Oxide ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I love to paint with my Distress Crayons. I scribble a bit onto a non-stick sheet and pick it up with a wet brush.

I used the coordinating Sizzix dies to cut out the bunny ears and the dog. I fussy cut off the dog ears and used my glossy accents to attach the bunny ears! A quick coat of Glossy Accents on the entire piece give it an extra pop!
