Colorful Seasons Oxidized

June 18, 2017 1 Comment

Hey there, hi there, ho there…I’m as happy as can be!  I spent part of my morning playing with ink.  I came up with a new techniqe – oxidized ink – a couple of days ago.  Today, I played with it to see how/if I could build layers of color.  The result is my Colorful Seasons oxidized card.   I’ll have a tutorial for the technique in a couple of days.

I started with a Pacific Point card base.

Then, I added Pacific Point, Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry inks.

I love how the Oxidized Technique mutes the color and allows you to

add layers of color that sit on top rather than mix in.

Once my background was ready, I trimmed it slightly.

Then, I added that thin strip to the upper middle of the card.

Underneath the strip is a length of Gold Mini Sequin Trim.

I attached it using the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.

They’re perfect for adding adhesive to a strip of sequins or ribbon!

Next, I stamped the leaf with veins from Colorful Seasons.

I inked with Calypso Coral and stamped on Calypso Coral cardstock before die cutting

with a Seasonal Layers Thinlit.

Behind this leaf, I added several loops of Copper Thread.

After cutting a Copper Foil circle with the 2″ Circle Punch, I cut the veins for a Pacific Point leaf.

I rolled a couple of Glue Dots and strategically placed them along the center vein

to attach the leaf to the Copper Foil circle.

The sentiment was heat embossed in Copper in the lower right.

Then to finish, I used Gold Mini Sequins, Pacific Point cast offs from the die cut leaf, dots of Fine Tip Glue and a light sprinkling of water to bring out oxidized spots.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Colorful Seasons oxidized card!

    I like this version more than the first one you did a few days earlier. The colors really stand out. Do you have a tutorial on how you achieved this look? I would love to give this a try.
