Post 177: Floral Card with Distress Oxides

Hi friends :)

I tried out my new distress oxide inkpads on this card and I must say I love the fact that one can stamp with them. I used the wonderful technique shared by Kelly G.  in which she used a die to create a stencil :) I did the same by using a circle die and creating a stencil out of it. My card design was inspired by her one layer card for W & W's Rerun No. 19. I loved her use of the die cut as a stencil, the distress ink blending around the stencilled area, the positioning of the sentiments and I did my own version of the same since I didn't have the parentville sets. 

List of Supplies:

Winnie & Walter Stamp- In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya (for the flowers)
Winnie & Walter Stamp- Wishing You with Evelin T Designs (Sentiment)
Sizzix Framelits Die- Circles
Gina K Designs Stitched Rectangles Die Set
Ranger's Archival Ink- Watering Can (for stamping the sentiment)
Distress Oxide Inkpads- Broken China, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio (for ink blending and stamping the flowers)
Mudra Clear Sequins
Glossy Accents
Cardstock 250 gsm

Here are a couple of pictures of the card: 

I am playing along with the following challenges:

W & W Rerun No. 19- Parentville (I didn't have these stamps so I was inspired by Kelly's one layer card to try out the stencil technique and also the design. I made my own version of it.) 
W & W May Color Combo with Heather H.  (I used the colors closest to the ones in the moodboard which were available to me and in the distress oxides)
