(2017 c65) Penny Black, Distress Oxide Inks


Penny Black die used:  Red and Greens   first I cut 5 out and colored with Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger then heat embossed with clear EP.

 The background was inked with Distress Oxide Ink:  Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and then I spritzed a stencil with water and pressed into the center which caused the Oxide ink to react.

It was a little difficult to arrange this intricate die in a circle & glue down to form the wreath, but totally worth it! Added bow at the top & an old stamp in the center, not even sure who made it.

  5. Wonderful Christmas card. I love it! Thank you for your entry and hope you’ll join us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Just want to leave you with God’s Word in 1 Corinthians 3:10-11 which says, “By the grace God has given me (Paul), I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” Enjoy the weekend.
