Editor’s Note: We’re happy to have designer Deborah Nolan as our guest on the CardMaker blog today!
It’s a pleasure to be back as a guest designer sharing another project that utilizes Ranger Distress Oxide inks.
If you’ve missed a chance to play with these inks or don’t understand the difference between the original Distress inks and their Oxide version, I wrote an article on how to create a layered background for the CardMaker blog last week. Today I’m sharing how a stencil can be misted with water to remove color from an inked background for a dreamy, soft image.
Step 1. Ink a background panel with three blocks of Distress Oxide inks, blending each one into the next.
Step 6: Dry with heat tool if needed.
Step 7: Trim panel and adhere to card base.
Supplies: Tim Holtz Distress Mixed Media Heavystock, Distress Oxide inks (abandoned coral, fossilized amber, picked raspberry) and Tim Holtz Distress sprayer from Ranger Industries Inc.; Love stamp and die set (#DC175) and Floral Filigree stencil from Hero Arts; gems from Prima Marketing Inc.; Stick It adhesive from Stick It Adhesive.
