First Play with Oxides
So this is my first play. They are so unique and it will take me a while to figure out all the different ways to use them. For the card above, I just swiped three colours (Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick) directly onto a mixed media paper card front. Just little swipes of colour here and there. Sprayed with lots of water and let it run. Used my heat tool to speed up the drying, and then splattered water droplets (ghosting). Used Walnut Stain to stamp my image and sentiment. Easy and fast card.
Since my inks are brand new, I'm heading over to join Darnell's April Fool's Day Boo-Boo & NBUS #11. No boo-boos on this card, but NBUS inks. :)
