Soooo excited that some of my Distress Oxides have arrived. Sadly the ‘Twisted Citron’ I ordered will be a month late being delivered 😦 so I have to wait until the end of August!
So I used ‘Wilted Violet’ and ‘Cracked Pistachio’ to make a couple of cards.
Step 1: I firstly went round the edge of each card, blending in a border of one of the Oxide colours with a small piece of Ranger Cut n Dry Foam (Wilted Violet for the chevrons card and Cracked Pistachio for the flower card.
Step 2: Next I laid over a stencil and sponged through one colour then the other. For the flower card, I used two different stencils. All designs came from stencils cut using Silhouette Cameo designs (I’ll see if I can find the names of the designers so I can credit them properly).
Step 3: With the stencil still in place, I tapped over a bit of dry pewter Pixie Powder.
Step 4: I sprayed lightly with water and removed the stencil.
Step 5: Then once it was dry,I flicked water droplets all over and after about 10 seconds Idabbed it off with kitchen roll.
Step 6: Then once it was dry I ran the other colour of Oxide around the very edges.
Step 7: I wanted to add words.
For the chevrons card, I tried using Crafter’s Companion foil and transfers, but it didn’t work and looked a mess. I had to rescue it by using a sparkly purple gel pen!
For the flowers one I used a rubber stamp, but it didn’t print perfectly, so I recruited the same sparkly pen!
Oh I need to get better at doing the writing on cards!
Step 8: I ummed and ahhed and decided to risk adding an accent of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Violet Galaxy) on the flower card. Luckily I didn’t mess it up!
I hope you like them. My aim was to stick to something simple for a change!
