Emboss Resist with Distress Oxides - Create a Smile Challenge


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a fun card for the new challenge over at the Create a Smile Stamps blog. Once again we had some fantastic entries for the past challenge, and we are really excited to see what you are going to create next. 

For today's card I used images from the new, super adorable Clear Superpowers Stamp set, the Cling Mandala set, and the Clear Friends Like You set. 
I stamped that adorable fairy and the unicorn, as well as the word "friends" on some Fabriano Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and I embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and cut everything with my Silhouette Portrait and the Pix Scan mat. I also added some sparkle to the fairy and the unicorn with my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen.


For the background I embossed the Mandala image with Nuvo Embossing Powder in Shimmering Pearl, which adds some really beatiful sparkle thanks to the glitter it contains, and then did some ink blending with Distress Oxide in Peacock Feathers. I also added some water splatters, which make me think of fairy dust being sprinkled by the fairy over the unicorn and the sentiment. 


For the card base I did some more ink blending with Distress Oxide in Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry, and, to finish off the card, I heat embossed the second part of the sentiment on black cardstock using white embossing powder. 

And that’s it for today! You have two weeks to enter your projects to be entered for a chance to win a 25€ gift certificate to the Create a Smile Stamps Shop.
