Hello! I would like to share some cards I made with backgrounds using Distress Oxide inks. I think most everyone knows, by now, that they are excellent for ink-blending. They also have been marketed for use on dark cardstocks. Mostly, I have seen people using them with black and kraft, but I wanted to see how they would work on other colors. And that is when I just fell in love with stenciling with these. They just look amazing over colored cardstocks.
The first card uses Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick over regular (cheap) yellow cardstock. I blended the colors and then did spritz water over top with the stencil still in place to get the slightly oxidized look.
The stamp was heat embossed first with neon orange embossing powder, and then while still hot, I added sparkle embossing powder and heated again. To match, I sponged yellow Oxide ink on my die cut flowers.
The second card uses Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks over Gina K Jelly Bean Green cardstock, using the same technique as above. I colored the stamp with alcohol markers. I adore this color combo - it is bright and beautiful!
Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Beach Unmounted Sheet, Stamptangle Chickadee, Sentiment set 3, Distress Oxide inks (colors above), American Crafts Neon Orange embossing powder, Recollections Sparkle Embossing powder, Memento black ink, Copic markers, Heidi Swapp Stencils, other supplies from my stash.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Did you take the plunge to get these new inks? I am glad I did! I am still waiting for my order with the new colors...
