Today I am posting cards I have made using John Lockwood's media plates and the Stamp to Impress board, I am really impresssd with this board. I used Distressed Oxides for the backgrounds and Versafine for the images.

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!!!!

Distressed Oxides

So I was very lucky to be able to get my hands on three of the new colours of Distress Oxides, I choose Picked Rasberry, Antique Linen and Peacock Feathers. So here are three cards I created using these colours and a few from the first release. I love making backgrounds and then colouring in stamped images, cutting out and transforming into a card.

Zentangle Cards

When I am away from home I try to take a little craft stuff with me so usually it's colouring pencils and stamped images but last week I took card, stencils and pens. I zentangled through the stencils then added the colour and made up cards when I got back home. Here are the finished results.

Distressed Oxide Inks

Hello today my post is using Distressed Oxides and Imagination Crafts Panel Stencils, to make clean and simple cards. Just tape the stencil down to you card and apply the Inl through the stencil, I usually use a piece of cut and dry foam as me preferred application method, but you could also use a stencil brush. Finished off my matting on the coloured card and a little piece of ribbon, love this fine ribbon wrapped around a couple of times. There it is clean and simple. Thanks for dropping by.
