Distress not Stress!


Distress Oxides show up on dark card, they give a chalky finish and react with water before they completely dry which makes them so versatile. 
Firstly, I used a 3D embossing folder to use as a background for my card. 
Then I swiped distress oxideacross the embossed card then spritzed with water. 
Stamped and heat embossed the JOFY flowers onto acetate. Painted and glittered on the reverse, cut them out.  
Made stems with pieces of scrap card then swiped with distress oxides. Arranged and glued the flowers and stems. Also, 3D glue to the centre of each flower. 
Coloured a die cut sentiment with oxide. Once on the card I used 3D glue in various places. 
Lastly matt and layered on to the card base.
