uwf g'day mate + stamping with distress oxide

The second United We Flourish stamp & die combo set premieres today, YAY!

The second set is a collaboration with Avery Elle and was designed by my super talented friend, Heather Campbell. It is called G'Day Mate and isn't it adorable?
G'Day Mate is a limited edition 4x6 clear stamp set with coordinating dies and it is exclusively available at Ellen Hutson LLC (you can see more here). I've had such a blast playing with this set and I've also been experimenting with using Distress Oxides to stamp & create backgrounds...
I love the colors and versatility of traditional Distress Inks and I've been having a blast creating messy inky backgrounds with the new Distress Oxides. And now I love them for stamping too!

It's fun to have all the Distress colors I love with the easy, solid coverage of a pigment.
G'Day Date pairs amazingly well with Avery Elle's Tropics stamp set



To create my border, I stamped the leaves first in Twisted Citron with my MISTI, leaving the leaf I wanted to overlap with black for last. Leaving the stamp on my MISTI, I stamped the leaf again on another piece of cardstock  but this time in black. Then I just trimmed a 1 inch piece from the cardstock with the black leaf and adhered that onto the Citron leaves piece.

Hope your weekend is awesome!

Hugs,
Carly
