Distress Oxides: Fabulous Birthday

This is the second in a series of posts with cards I made using Distress Oxides. On this one I started with a full panel (4.25" x 5") of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock, on which I had blended various Oxide inks. I then put some of the inks on my mat, spritzed with water and dipped in parts of the panel. I also picked up some of the ink from my mat and splattered it onto the panel. Anything goes with these inks, as long as you try to use colors that won't make mud. Remember, wet on wet blends, and wet on dry layers. That means that if you dry your blended layer, the ink you add on top of that will layer rather than blend, so you are less likely to make mud.

I die cut my panel with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn LF768 Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Set. This cuts a rectangle that is 3.75" x 5".  I stamped this beautiful Magenta image and the sentiment in Versamark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder.

I mounted the panel onto So Silk Passion Purple cardstock and then on to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.

I tried to taka a picture of this card at an angle so you could see how pretty the gold is in real life. My lighting wasn't the best, but you get the idea!

I love how this turned out, and it's so easy to do. You can see my Distress Oxide overview post here.
