Stand Tall

This card came together so quickly which is unusual for my brain-to-paper process.

I stamped the foliage using just Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio; the darker color is the Oxide. I love the effect of stamping off without having to stamp off! For the flamingo I started with the darkest shade then worked my way to the lightest which helped me position the layered stamps--the MISTI was perfect for this. A strip of gold foil washi to emphasize the vertical and a few gold dots finish up the card.

Do join in for The Heart Desires Challenge 12. Dude, I am loving the board!

  1. I saw your gorgeous card and I love the inspiration, so I was able to enter the challenge too! Interesting you used both types of ink in the same shade, but they look just different enough..I've been holding off on ordering the oxides, but maybe I should re-think that ;)
