Stenciling with Distress Oxide Inks

Hello friends.  Welcome to my blog.

Here's another card from my play with the Distress Oxide Inks.

I LOVE this silky smooth ink for stenciling!

I sponged the ink through the stencil, spritzed with water and
removed the stencil.  The water makes the ink brighten up.
It left a few splatters to give some feeling of texture to the flower.

I cut one X-stitch border piece from a larger one and inlaid it.

Some splatters with watered regular ink and dew drops finished it up.

This month's CAS Mix Up
I've used stamping, splatter, stencil, and inlaid die cuts.

I'm also taking this to TIME OUT Challenges
No kissing on this card but I'll send some with the hug!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

So artistic Bonnie! I'm loving the look of those DO inks, but trying not to succumb to the temptation, or I will want every one of them!! Have a lovely day! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx

The card looks very beautiful. Both the use of stencil as well as the splendid colors of DO, by splashing, on border cutters ending ... The whole is really great and makes a great card. I would like to thank you very much for your presence and friendship. That means a lot to me.

I love the variety of color you get by spritzing the Oxides, Bonnie. Plus the X cut panels add so much texture.

Those inks are really fabulous. Love the vibrant colour and those gorgeous die cut rectangles frame your card really well x
