More Distress Oxide Trees

Hiya! I am completely obsessed with Distress Oxides! I have been making backgrounds with different colour combinations, using the watercolour smooshing technique, then spritzing with Glimmer Mist. I stamp the trees onto the backgrounds and fussy cut them out. After gluing them to the cards, I have added detail with a glitter pen and some Nuvo Drops.

Here are a few I have made:

Simple Christmas Card

Hiya! Here's a quick card I made using die cuts. I've kept it simple and glitter-free for a change! Just a little reindeer in the snow. It's a small card, just 10cm square, so I might use him as a large tag.

Thank You!

Hi! Here's a card I put together today. I actually made the flowery background a few years ago, but wasn't sure what to do with it, so it's been kicking around in the unfinished projects pile! The background was made with Crafty Notions colour sprays, gilding flakes and stamped flowers. I covered the flowers with some sort of glaze, but I can't remember what I used now. Then I glued the glass pebbles to the flower centres. The background was a much larger piece, but I liked how this section of it looked through the frame so I cut it down to fit, then added the sentiment.

Oxides and Woodware Trees

Hi! I just bought a few more colours of Distress Oxides, as I am completely besotted with them! I've been making backgrounds with them, spritzing with some Glimmer Mist, then paper piecing them onto cards - much more fun than colouring! I'm not a huge fan of fussy cutting, but I love the end result. I finished them off with a glitter pen and Nuvo Drops.

Here are a few I have made with one of my favourite Woodware stamps:

JOFY Trees Obsession

Hi! Here are a couple more cards made with Distress Oxide backgrounds and a JOFY trees stamp. These two are inspired by the colour challenges at Color Throwdown and MFT. I used Distress Oxides to make the backgrounds (with some Brilliance ink for the silver in the first card) and cut them out to fix to the card. I used a glitter pen and Nuvo Drops to add some final touches.
