Yesterday I shared with you a card I did using Distress Oxide inks and a baby wipe. I did that card on glossy card stock, and today I am sharing with you my card using the same technique, but this is done on Photo paper. It is thinner than glossy paper, but it produces more radiant colours than on the glossy card stock. 
 
But I have to say, I like both of them. Either way, the baby wipes are the trick. 
 
I first die cut my piece using Penny Black’s Stitched Stacks die.
 
 Starting with my lightest distress oxide inks, being Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry and a tad of Broken China, laying down the colour, spritzing with water and smooshing into the paper and, the most important part, drying between each layer. 
 
Once I was done with the layers and happy with the outcome, I stamped my flower using Distress Oxide Wilted Violet. I first did a regular stamp with no water, then on the second stamp I added a spritz of water. I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The the magic, wiping it down with a baby wipe. The colours just pop, as you can see in this video. 

 
I attached my panel to some fun foam with scor-pal tape and attached the panel to a light pink card base. 
I also like to do the inside of my cards, so I did the background as above on a die cut piece of Photo paper and to bring the violet inside I stamped the sentiment using the Wilted Violet.
I hope you have enjoyed this card, and I hope you will give this a try. It is fun to be sure.
 
Thank you for dropping by, I will see you next time!
