Spring Blooms for Honey Bee Stamps

I’m up for the social media team on Instagram for Honey Bee Stamps today. But I wanted to share here too! I took a class last weekend with the amazing Jenn Shurkus on all things Distress Ink. What fun! It encouraged me to pull out some things that I hadn’t really used in a while and just play. I strongly encourage doing that! It is good for the soul.

Using Distress Watercolor Paper, I stamped the Spring Blooms image with Versamark. Then I heat embossed with white embossing powder. Using Distress Oxide inks, I smooshed the ink down on my Waffleflower Watercolor Mat and then spritzed with water. I then took a small acrylic block and used it to pick up the ink for placement. I like using a small one because I can sort of control where color goes and then use the corner or edge to place more down.

The key here is patience. Just let it dry between colors. It also allows you to see where you need to come back with a little more color for variance. The Oxide inks have such interesting color breakdowns with water and they are fabulous to use. For colors I used Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, Squeezed Lemonade, and Mustard Seed. I chose a sentiment from the new Spring Joy Bouquet set, stamped it on Black card stock, embossed with white and then cut it out with the coordinating Spring Joy Bouquet die. I added a few Bubblegum Confetti elements to finish.

I hope you enjoy this card and will go give this a try. If you are totally new to Distress Ink, go visit Jenn Shurkus and sign up for one of her classes. You’ll be happy you did! I have some more fun coming this weekend from Erin Lee Creative and then a new release for her on Monday. See you then!
