I must say i am really enjoying playing with the new Distress Oxide inks. They are just so lovely to use and because they are an Opaque ink, you can achieve some lovely effects.
the only problem with this card, was the fact that i was having so much fun playing that it was only when i had finished that i realised i hadn't taken any photos expect for the very first stage
The background was done with Broken China and Iced Spruce, using the wrinkle free distress method, they really do layer so nicely providing you dry between each layer.
After this layer was dry i added one of the Inspiration Jars direct to the background, and then using post it note to mask off the jar, i then stamped in Sunflowers by Lesley Matthewson then using another piece of post it and stamping with the sunflower made another mask and re-stamped the sunflowers a couple more times. I painted the flowers using spiced marmalade and peeled paint, and kept layering and drying until i was haps with the colours. I then lightly stamped the new Neil Walker web stamp, and edged over the top with more spiced marmalade. Used a piece of scrap card with spiced marmalade on to stamp the phrase from the Botanicals plate.
Hope you have a crafty weekend
