I woke up super early this morning after hearing the dog "sleep bark" then snore. She must have been in a deep sleep because she didn't budge when I left the bedroom. I tiptoed to the other side of the house to my craft room and decided to log on to some blogs and message some crafty friends. To my surprise Theresa was up and we made plans to chat tonight since she needed to get to bed (I told you I was up early). I pulled out my oxide inks and starting thinking about what to make. I really wanted to make a birthday card using the celebrate die.
I applied worn lipstick and broken china to white cardstock with a round blending tool. I did mist the page and dabbed it with a paper towel. Then I found my MFT chunky chevron cover-up. I thought it would be neat to let some color pop through the cut-out pieces and a have few white chunks scattered around.
The balloons were sitting on my desk from last week and I figured I needed to use my stash rather throw them away. I added white craft thread this time instead of black.
I took the two oxide inks and blended the colors on another piece of white cardstock. I ran the celebrate die through my Cuttlebug and adhered it to some white craft foam for dimension. There is some sparkle (Wink of Stella) that you can barely see in the photo on the letters.
Looking forward to trying some other techniques with these inks. I still have another half of the video I started to watch the other day. Hope to find something new to try. If you can recommend a few videos, I would be very appreciative!!!
