Sparkly Distress Oxide Backgrounds | MFT Super Animals
OK this post and video took most of last week. SO. MANY. ISSUES lol. When you get to the point where you've already invested a ton of time and effort (at least to my thinking) then one just has to stay determined but 3 days of editing and fiddling and re-starting when things crash etc etc make for a frustrating time!
However - the editing was finally accomplished - probably doesn't help that in spite of my efforts the video is still 20 mins long lol!! But these cards were a LOT of fun to create - from the backgrounds to the images:
I created sparkly sky backgrounds with Distress Oxide inks over Simon Says Stamp's white card stock. After sponging on the ink I added white splatter then coated the backgrounds with Shimmer Sheer Sparkle Spray - I show in the video just how sparkly they are!
I used the new City Bock Die-namics for the city scape - they totally finished off the scenes for these cards!
All the critters and images are from 2 of My Favorite Things newest sets - Super Cat and Super Dog. I couldn't decide on which set to use so I used both and created 2 cards. I stamped all the images onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb card stock with MFT's Extreme Black ink and coloured them in with Copic markers. I added a bunch of sparkle to the images using Tonic's Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Shimmer pen. After that was dry I added highlights with a white gel pen and used my Black Glaze pen for all the critters noses and eyes.
I finished off the insides of the cards with more critters and more sentiments and that was it!
To see how these cards came together check out the video below:
