I hope you’re enjoying the Easter weekend so far. I’m getting caught up on lots of stuff in my craft-room, and eating chocolate, so I can’t complain! I’ve got a pretty scene card to share with you today, featuring one of the new Stamping Bella Butterfly Girls.

Butterfly Girl Blanche Distress Oxide Scene Card:
You may have gathered that I love using the Distress Oxide inkpads * to create backgrounds. I enjoy using them so much!
Last week I shared a fun gnome scene card and a video showing how I created it. On that card I did my stamping, Distress Oxide ink blending, and Copic colouring on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper. You can check that post and video out HERE.
Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper is well suited to ink blending, but not quite as well suited to Copic colouring – you can adapt and work with it, but it isn’t my favourite paper to use for Copics. Today I wanted to show you something I do a little more often, which is prioritising the Copic colouring aspect by using a more Copic friendly paper and making the inked background work on that. For today’s card and video I used my favourite Copic friendly paper – Make it Colour Blending Card.
I love how it turned out. The Distress Oxides make for such easy, fun, and vibrant backgrounds.
