After yesterday’s more intense and involved card, I thought a colorful yet simple card would be perfect for today. I thought I’d do some multicolor stamping with Distress Oxide Inks and use the new Halftone Stars stamp set from Altenew. I can never resist a star stamp set, so when I saw this stamp set I knew exactly what I would be using first from their September release. :)
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
Distress Oxide inks coat stamps well and stay wet for a bit longer than dye inks, so it was especially easy to tap the different ink colors on the star stamps and sort of “blend” the colors together. I used four different Distress Oxide colors: Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, and Peacock Feathers.
Stamped onto kraft colored cardstock, this color combination makes me think of Lisa Frank? Anyone else? :)
