Inky Goodness with the Light Bulb Moment

Hello friends!

I don't know about you, but I love getting inky... especially when I see that I did something good for my inks, paper, stamps and soul! 😊

See, I made this card with a lot of layers of colors and lots of love!!
tis the season-002

I started out with the two bigger images and stamped them with tons of Distress Oxide.
Of course, I have to use my MISTI for all the multi-layer coloring.

The color inspiration came from the traditional fall/winter palette.

As my process progressed, I kept adding more and more colors.
Ding---> Distress Oxide do blend really beautifully and will not add muddiness if the colors are mixed/contaminated.  If you like to experiment with adding colors and find it challenging... 
try all the colors in the same color family. For example: mix Twisted Citron  , Mowed Lawn. and even the likes of Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover.

tis the season
It is so satisfying as there is not limit as to how many colors that you can add.
I find it super relaxing to stamp images like these.

Once I was happy with the stamping, I clear-embossed the larger images by using Ranger Clear EP.
