Good morning my crafty friends

I made this card in August 2017, I think it was when I started collecting and using the distress oxide inks

I haven't altered any of the original post under the photo

We have sunshine today and it reminded me of this card that I'd made when my Distress Oxide Inks first arrived!

The finished card is 6"x8" and I added a black panel and a smaller white panel and on this panel I stamped 3 lillies  with a Versa Mark Watermark Stamp Pad

At the bottom of the panel I then stamped the sentiment using a Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad.  I covered the sentiment then the flowers with  WOW CLEAR Embossing Powder and heat set.  If you immediately cover your stamped sentiment with a clear embossing powder you are able to colour over it without any colour change to it, then give it a little polish with some paper towel

I used 4 oxide inks on the background then spritzed water over the full panel and this particular time I dried it with my heat tool.  I was then getting a little 'carried away' with the colours, or enjoying myself too much and added yet more colour and spritzed again as well as heat drying it.  I added red line double sided tape to the back of it, adhered to the black then both onto the base card

To complete I randomly added several dots of NuVo Crystal Drops

  • white card stock ~ Papermill Direct
  • black card stock ~ Creative Expressions
  • distress oxide inks/broken china, fired brick, fossilized amber, worn lipstick ~ Ranger
  • VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad ~ Tsukineko
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad ~ Tsukineko
  • clear embossing powder ~ WOW
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops 'Morning Dew' ~ Tonic Studios UK
  • red line tape ~ Woodware
Tomorrow's post will be available at 11am along with the winner of yesterday's card

I read all your comments and really appreciate you leaving me a message.

  5. Beautiful June. Love the background. I love distress oxides and the different effects you can get.

  6. Such a pretty card, June. I love the effect of the Distress Oxides. xx

  7. I recently bought my first Distress Oxide inks and am learning how to use them. It always looks so beautiful when other crafters use them for background, but I think I need to watch a few tutorials!
