This morning I took another panel I had worked up with Distress Oxide Inks and Gina K. Designs Cranberry Tart ink using a Poinsettia stencil from the Tim Holtz Mini Collection Set 19 and combined it with a sentiment from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Set 475 Holiday Foliage.
I had earlier done the water technique using the Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick and Cranberry Tart combination. First I sponged a coat of the Worn Lipstick and then added some of the Cranberry Tart. I thought the Cranberry Tart took too much of the lighter color away so I sponged over the top again with the Worn Lipstick and then used the stencil spritzed with water to make a patterned design. I placed a paper towel over the stencil and held it down so that the water would seep into the panel and create the more subtle poinsettia images. Then I dried the stencil off and then used it again to add just a bit of the stencil design here and there using the darker Cranberry Tart ink.
I just love that sentiment and font and decided to just stamp it with the Cranberry Tart. Next I took a Memory Box Cross Stitched Border Die to cut it out and added it to the card design. I thought the cross stitched design looked like a frame. The main colored panel of the card was die cut with a larger Memory Box cross stitched border die as well. All were added to a base card of white card stock.
I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week where we are to make the sentiment the focal point. I hope this works well for that challenge.
Well, I am so glad you are visiting and leaving such wonderful comments. I can tell you that working with the Distressed Oxide inks has been a pleasure and I am sure I will be doing many more things with them as I experiment with them. I wish all of you a pleasant weekend.
