(2017 c24) Essentials by Ellen, Oxide Distress
More fun with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger: Peeled Paint, Broken China, Wilted Violet & regular Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch.
As you can see to the right, First I impressed the dies from Essentials by Ellen die set called Wild Garden by Julie Ebersole into my watercolor paper by using a silicone mat with my Sizzix Big Kick so that I would know where to apply Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger for my flowers. For the purple I first layered regular Distress Ink: Blueprint Sketch and then sponged Oxide Wilted Violet on top. Then I sponged Broken China for the background. In the second picture you can see how I spritzed the entire piece with water to softer & make the Oxide react. The picture on the left shows how i had taped my dies together for the first impression and then it was possible to place over the flowers & actually cut out after coloring.
When removing the pieces from the background I used a great technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire’s Post with Laurie Willison about positioning die pieces with Press N Seal (Jennifer’s Husband actually invented Press N Seal). The picture on the right shows that the entire piece was pressed down on a piece of Press N Seal and then carefully lifted off the large background piece leaving the die cuts positioned on the Press N Seal.
For this card I lined the background with a piece of white cardstock and I then removed the center pieces and glued in the appropriate empty spaces of the flowers. Finally I sprayed water onto my hand and “clapped” it over the piece to create drops & heated to cause the Oxide Ink to react. The sentiment was cut from DCWV 6×6: The Foiled Cardstock MS-019-00003 with Positive Word by Julie Ebersole EEDIEJ-042-16
Tomorrow I will make a card using the actual cut out flowers.
