Hi stamping friends and welcome back. Today I have a New Video – Distress Oxide Sprays Simple Backgrounds #1. I’m also using this adorable Stamp/die set from My Favorite Things called Warm & Feathered Hugs, that little owl is so fun to color….so you get a quick little copic lesson on coloring him as well.
This post is also a blog hop with the Scrap ‘N Stamp Design Team and our challenge this month – you guessed it “DISTRESSED OXIDES”, whoo hoo – some of my favorite inks to play with and we have lots of fun projects for you today in the hop. PSST, and a sale, so read to the end of the post, you don’t want to miss out.
I have a video to share below so I won’t go into too much detail, but the sprays I used for this background are:
Mermaid Lagoon, Spiced Marmalade, Fossiled Amber and Vintage Photo. I think they are absolutely FAB together and create this warm fall background for my little owl.
Once the background was dry, I white heat embossed my sentiment and snowflakes, added a white mat and attached all of that to my Gina K Designs Tranquil Teal cardstock. If you live in Canada, Scrap ‘N Stamp carries Gina K cardstock – yeah – as Gina K no longer ships cardstock to Canada.
This is a CAS card, (clean and simple), super easy to create and can be done in 10 minutes or less once the sprayed background is dry. A tip about that: when I set up my spray mess, I cut a whole bunch of different sized watercolor paper and do a bunch at once, then I have them to use in the future without the mess.
Now it’s time to check out what the rest of the team has created with “Oxides” for you today. Up next is my very talented friend Nancy with her beautiful card design and if you get lost along the way, here is a list of the participants:
