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.

Decorating Canvas Bags

Here are two more decorated bags, the first is quite similar to others I have made but I try to make each different. this one is made with Imagination Crafts products, Starlight Textile Paints, Stencils, Rice Papers band more Stencils.




Bag two is a combination of various products. Rice Papers, Stecils and Paints from Imagination,  then I have added some stamping using Threaders Ink Pads and my favourite Paperarsty Stamps, gives a different look. Which I am very pleased with, I could and might add a few buttons and may be beads.

Starlight Wax and Structure paste

I am back today with one of my favourite cards. For this card I took a piece of Imagination Crafts card and added Black Starlight Wax through a stencil when dry I then add another layer this time with Structure Paste through the same stencil but just moving the stencil slightly so a small amount of the black is showing. The final step is to add a few pieces of the stencil using Sparkle Medium. Mat as usual and there is my card.

Fabric Relief Paste from Imagination Crafts

Hello I thought I would show you some cards I made with the new paste from Imagination Crafts. Although this is designed primarily for use on textiles this does work really well on card. I have used on canvas bags, T shirts and Fabric, but in the two cards here I have used it on black card with great success.
