Finally I got to use some of my Oxide Inks to make a card. I watched a video by Jennifer MaGuire in which she added designs with water using both stencils and stamps on her Oxide Ink backgrounds. So that seemed so interesting to me that I decided to try my luck with it and I was really pleased with the outcome.
For my background I inked up the Gina K. Designs white card stock with Distressed Oxides Fired Brick and Worn Lipstick. Then I took a Tim Holtz poinsettia stencil and spritzed it with water and laid it on my card stock. Next I placed a paper towel over it and left it do it's magic for awhile. I ended up with a gorgeous subtle designed background. The stamps I used for the card are from Gina K. Designs Festive Frames and A Year of Flowers set. The white background was stamped repeatedly with the poinsettia image in Cranberry Tart ink and I also used that ink color to add the sentiment and the popped poinsettia image. The popped poinsettia was colored with Zig markers and I added additional color using the Worn Lipstick.
The background was die cut with a Cottage Cutz double stitched rectangle die before adding it to the white stamped layer. The card base was of Cranberry Tart card stock and I lined it with a panel of white so I could add a sentiment later on and write a message. The finishing touch was to add some pearls.
This was fun and although I only have six of the Oxide inks I think I may have to play more and gradually add other colors to my supply. I wanted to try them first before investing in a lot of new things.
I hope your week is going well. And, thanks for visiting.
