Yesterday I made several backgrounds using Oxide Inks. There was one I really was not so happy with as the water stenciled design did not show up too well, but I did not toss it. Instead this time I added some of the same design using one of the stencils from the Tim Holtz Mini Collection Set 19 using the regular Pine Needles Distress Ink pad to stamp over the background which had been done previously with the Cracked Pistachio Oxide Ink. Now I had both a light pattern and a darker pattern. And, one thing I find with the Oxides. If you don't like what you see just ink over it again when it is dry and redo it.
I paired the panel I had made with some of the Stripes pattern from the Gina K. Designs Foil Mates line that was foiled with her Turquoise Sea Fancy Foils. It was almost a perfect match to the Oxide inked panel. The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Holly Jolly Stamp set and was inked up with Red Velvet. Each of these panels were then added to a layer of Gina K. Designs Red Velvet card stock.
I finished the card by adding all to a white card stock base. I was going to add more to the design but in the end I decided to keep it clean and simple as I think the foiled background dresses it up a lot.
We got some much needed rain last night along with some hail and strong winds but the moisture is very appreciated. Thank you Lord!
Thanks for the visit and have a great evening everyone!
