Oxides


My card is an experiment, I watch a friend play with her Ranger Oxides and I know I'm a bit late to this party but I'm so glad to actually watch someone. Yes I know you can You Tubes but I find it doesn't hold my interest and my mind wanders, which means its pointless watching them.

So I got myself a few, what I considered nice pretty colours and thought I would use the Simon Says Stamp Flora Background, they very gladly sent me when they had Mothers, Fathers Florals release unfortunately it always seems to be around when I busy.

It does make a good background and when I coloured using the Oxides it really brought the stamp alive. Did I say how much I love these inkpads, I was frustrated with the distress inkpads because I love vibrant colours and I always found to get the depth of colour I wanted it use to hurt my hands which was why I love the Inkylicious Dusters. Now I get the colour using blending tools and no pain was involved, Ok it could be that the inkpads are new and but you can get reinkers so I can have the nice and wet all the time.

Didn't want to waste my background so cut them in four and backed it with a white Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square. I used Simon Says Stamp Hydrangea and Stitched Flakes to make my flowers and the leaves are Simon Says Stamp Circle of Leaves

My sentiment is using the Simon Says Stamp Love Die and my I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banners with their Best Hugs stamp set.

This is beautiful. I am so glad to hear that someone else wasn't having much luck with regular distress ink; I'm about ready to throw mine out! But now that you've given me hope...I'll give it another shot. I also SO agree with you on watching videos. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Now I have to go shop for some oxides! :-)

I adore that background Debby and the oxides looks so pretty over the white embossing of that lovely stamp. The added flowers and leaves go beautifully and I love the large double layered sentiment with the stitched banner for the other part of the sentiment, a great idea. x
