Cardmaking, EBE by Julie Ebersole, Essentials By Ellen

Dreamy Distress Background + EBE Sneak Peek With Elena

Distress Inks can be blended to create bright & dreamy backgrounds, perfect for unicorns and rainbows!

Hi there! Elena here, with a sneak peek of the fantasmagorical (it’s a word!) Unicorn and Rainbows set:

I wanted to give the card a dreamy quality, without resorting to too many pastel colors. I grabbed a few different colors of blue distress inks: Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Faded Jeans and blended them together. I blended it so that the edges faded to white, and you can still see the different levels of blue. I then flicked on some water and white paint to add to that whimsical, dreamy quality.

I stamped, die-cut and colored all of the images with copic markers. I love the one unicorn with his frayed mane, jumping over the rainbow! The streak of light behind him is actually the image of the shooting star, but I cut off the star and gave him that extra element.

When I was happy with the scene, I cut off the bottom of my ink-blended cardstock piece, and adhered all of the images to it. I then die-cut another piece of white cardstock (using the largest of the Lawn Fawn rectangle stackables dies) and stamped my favorite sentiments from the set below.

I hope you like what I’ve created for you! Thanks for stopping by!

The Essentials by Ellen Unicorns ‘N Rainbows stamps & dies will be available Sunday, July 8th!
