Quick and Easy Cards with Distress Oxides on Photo Paper by Melina Dahl



It´s Melina here today sharing two quick and easy cards with you.
Hope you all have a lovely week! 

Here´s what I did:

I made these backgrounds a while ago by simply smudge Distress Oxides on my craft sheet, spray
with water and pick them up on photo paper.

I stamp and cut out the butterflies from the Doodled Butterflies and Leaves stamp set.
I colour them in with Distress Crayons and a water brush.
I do some background stamping with two of the leaves from the same stamp 
set using Distress oxides.

I spray That´s Crafty Sparklers spray on the butterflies, the blue one on the blue/green 
and the red on the pink/orange. It does not show on the photos, but it really adds a nice shimmer 
in real life.

I stamp the sentimens from Lynne´s Affirmations set 3 and 4 and use the little paint blob stamp 
to add some contrast in the corners. I glue my card panels down on black cardstock and then onto white card bases, add the butterflies and my cards are finished.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
