Distressed Oxides

So in an effort to be a good blogger here is another post from me with two cards using Distressed Oxides one of my favourite products at the moment.

The first one is using a Woodware stamp I think this one was released in the autumn of last year. I really didn’t need any more flower stamps but I thought this one could be used in so many different ways.

The second is made from a piece of card coloured with Distressed Oxides and then embossed using one of Crafters Companions 3d embossing folders. Then I took some of the colour way using a paint brush and water. This is also one of my favourite techniques. The words are from a Woodware set.

New Year I will blog more!!

OH dear what a bad blogger I was at the end of last year, I promise to try harder, but I think I probably promised that last year!!!

So to start the year here are two cards quite different but one Woodware Stamp.

One of my favourite stamps

I love  using this Paperartsy stamp from way back, this time I made a background using Izinks Inks and then stamped in dark blue Versafine and embossed with clear powder. A Matt and a few words to make a stunning card.

Thanks for dropping by!!!

Card with a difference

This card I started a few weeks ago when away from home and just had stencils and pens with me. So I started by adding an outline through my stencil then coloured with Distressed Oxides, next stamped over the whole thing with a little flower stamp and some extra ones in blue. Next step to cut out but decided the flower was actually too big so a cut into pieces and reassembled to fit my card, so nothing lost!!! Eventually it all went together well, so never give and don't throw anything in the bin you never know what you can do with a disaster!!!!
