[Guest & Giveaway] Happy Day Distress Oxide Background by Julie Faherty

Hello all! We have special guest joining us today for another guest feature with another $10 gift certificate to giveaway as well! Today we have the very talented Julie Faherty joining us! She has an amazing style and I know you will love the awesome card and video! 

Hi Everyone! My name is Julie and I have the opportunity to be a guest today with Waffle Flower Crafts.

Today I am going to be creating a card using the Happy Day Stamp and Die set by Big Bear and Bird and create a colorful background using Ranger Ink Distress Oxides.

To create a banner look with each sentiment for the background, using the grids on the stamping block and lining them up with the lines on the graph paper helped me keep the words in a straight line as much as possible.

Over the stamped images I used some Ranger Ink Distress Oxides (Cracked Pistachio, Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Fossilized Amber) and sprayed some water onto the ink to create the oxidized and chalky look. For the bear, I embossed the stamped image with clear embossing powder so the black ink would be glossy and stand out against the background. To color in the bear I used the Distress Oxide ink again in Vintage Photo with a mini blending tool. 

With a water brush pen I filled in the flowers and wheels of the bike with the same colors used for the background. I also used the matching die to cut the bear out and adhered to the background with some iridescent sequence to make the card a little sparkly! Finally, I adhered the card to the background using some 3M tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
