Oh So Eclectic Oxidized

Oh So Ecletic Oxidized technique card from theartfulinker.com

I’ve been playing this morning! After watching a couple of videos about oxidized inks, I thought “I bet I can do that with Stampin’ Up!” inks.  Guess what!?! YOU CAN!!!  My play time resulted in a cool Oh So Eclectic oxidized card.  It’s a fun new look/twist on using ink.  And though it looks like it might be messy, it is not!

Oh So Eclectic  Oxidized

Using the Oxidized Technique, the colors are kind of muted —

they have a soft, chalky feel.

The color goes on in a smooth, creamy way.

A little water plays nicely and

brings out the oxidized spots.

Once my background was ready, I trimmed off a strip to make the layer a bit narrower.

Then, I used the strip as an accent.

I heat embossed three flowers from Oh So Eclectic in gold.

Then using the watercolor flower, I inked it in Berry Burst and stamped off twice

before adding the image to Whisper White cardstock.

Next, I inked the leaves in Emerald Envy and stamped off twice.

Before cutting out the images using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits,

I used my Aqua Painter to brush them with water to really

fade/distress them.

One last set of leaves was heat embossed with gold on Whisper White.

Then, I inked the sentiment from Oh So Eclectic with Archival Basic Black.

After adding the focal layer to an Emerald Envy layer, I finished the card with a Thick Whisper White base.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Oh So Eclectic Oxidized Technique card.
