I'm slowly adding Distress Oxide ink pads to my stash--one coupon at a time! I decided to use faded jeans & cracked pistachio with my favorite CAS design to make an Easter card for the Impression Obsession challenge.
I blended the 2 inks in an area masked on a white panel & misted with Perfect Pearls before removing the tape. The shimmer is really gorgeous in person. Then I stamped the IO Solid Tree in VersaMagic Jumbo Java multiple times using my Mini MISTI. Easter Blessings (B5430) was stamped the same way. I added some splatters of the blue & green inks before mounting the panel with foam tape to a card front sponged with the faded jeans. I tend to use this tree in the Fall, but I think it works great for any season by changing the color scheme. I checked the DT cards & looks like IO is pretty lenient with the definition of CAS, in case you're thinking I didn't leave enough white space. This will go to my brother & his wife or my cousin & his wife as I love using this tree on cards for men. I'm also entering Stamplorations Theme. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
