Not sure you can see, I used photo card that I use to print my images, sometimes I have some off cuts and my friend Lorraine who loves all things Tim Holtz and Ranger showed me a technique she found using Oxides. She knows I lose interest in You Tube with seconds, so she showed me in real life.

Since I was playing with Oxides for Make your Own Background challenge couple of weeks ago, I thought I would give it a go. The whole card is made with photo card, I buy mine from Costco, I used the off cuts to practice with.

I used the Simon says Stamp Leafy Frame and their Big Happy die from the latest release. The flowers are SSS Forget me Knot Flower die and I added some of their Stitched Snowflake for the centres.

To finish I used some Doodlebug Glitter Sprinkles and Simon says Stamp Thoughtful Messages.

The end result is a very shiny card and maybe a bit OTT. I'm pretty sure I won't use this technique for card making but to make individual bits maybe, does mean now I have to keep all photo card offcuts.
