Face The Sun with Mindy Eggen

Distress Oxide Inks Face The Sun Ink Blending Life Changing Blender Brushes

Welcome back everyone! I hope you are having an amazing week.

Today I'm sharing a card I created for the Picket Fence Studios April Release featuring Face The Sun stamp set. The first thing I think of when I see Picket Fence Studios is their gorgeous large images. They already have quite a collection of them and here is one more!

While these images are amazing to color, they also make great background pieces.

I created my background by first ink blending Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks using Life Changing Blending Brushes onto Neenah Solar White cardstock.

Once that was completed dry, I prepped the background with an anti-static powder tool and stamped the large image in the corners of the card with clear ink with the help of my Misti Stamping Tool.

I sprinkled on the white embossing powder and heat set with my Wagner Heat Gun.

I personally like doing the heat embossing after the ink blending because I feel the white stands out more. Yes, you could do the emboss resist technique and wipe away the excess ink, but I find it's never quite as bright.

Once everything was dry, spritzed the background with water and dabbed up with a paper towel. I also flicked on a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls in the colors Perfect Pearls and Iris.

I finished off the card by heat embossing a sentiment from the Fireflies on a Warm Night stamp set in white embossing powder onto black cardstock. Then trimming down and adding to the card front with foam squares.

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration and will head over to the Picket Fence Designs website to check out this stamp and all the other amazing products they carry!
