Joyful


Good Morning.

Here is a simple card I made while playing with my Distress Oxide inks and a credit card.  
I showed some cards I had created on my blog months ago about how to do this technique but I will give you a short review.

I used a heavy weight cardstock instead of watercolour paper so the ink would sit on top of the paper and not soak in.  I rubbed the Oxide ink directly onto my non-stick craft sheet, sprayed with water and dipped just the edge of my credit card into the ink and then dragged it across and down my paper.
 
When it was dry, I placed the piece inside my Misti to stamp the flower and add the sentiment.


Thanks so much for coming to take a look.

This is a brilliant technique using a credit card to apply the ink Karen, and love these open and silhouette agapanthus flowers and sentiment. I love the combination of green and blue oxides you have used. x

Another super creative card Karen, thanks for sharing how you did this! I don't have any oxides yet so might try with regular inks and see how it works.
