More oxide inks

Just playing today, using the oxide inks to color and stamp, without water or smooshing.  I love a wood plank background, so I started there......

supplies: white, black, denim blue, and mint cardstock, Impression Obsession  Wooden Plank cling, Hero Arts Charcoal, and broken china, cracked pistachio, and faded jeans distress oxide inks, Tim Holtz Floral stencil, an old Pink Paislee garden text stamp, Simon Leanna butterfly die, Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers, Doodlebug blue enamel dot

I started by stamping my plank background in charcoal, then sponging it with broken china and cracked pistachio oxide inks.  Next I covered it with the stencil and sponged through with faded jeans, followed by the text stamp in a random fashion (pistachio over the broken china areas and vice-versa).  The panel was then allowed to dry naturally, then it was trimmed and framed with a denim blue and affixed to the mint card base.

I chose a butterfly to go along with the garden feel and the stickers tied in well with that.  I REALLY love the way these 3 oxide inks look together!

Thanks for your visit - I'll be back tomorrow with our regular Wednesday Simon Wednesday challenge post.


  1. I love flowers against a plank...so this one is a big hit with me.

  2. I like the fancy little butterfly and your-label-maker like sentiment! This is lovely Lin!

  3. Gorgeous background with the woodplank and stencil, Lin! Hey - did I tell you that you enabled me on that background?! Picked one up a couple weeks ago and need to get it inked up!!

  6. Hi Lin! I have exactly the same color Hybiscus in the garden and it is flowering just like yours... your cards remain beautiful!
