Distress Oxide cards with Concord & 9th Stamps/Dies & Gold Foil

I have combined some of my favourite products & techniques to create these cards below.

Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, Broken China & Cracked Pistachio Distress oxide inks were 
swiped across water colour paper using a wet acrylic block to create the background.
Concord & 9th stamps were used throughout.


The Concord & 9th Leaf die cut was from white card stock 'pre splattered' 
with drops of Distress Oxide inks in multiple colours.
The Skeleton leaf stamp was applied & heat embossed with Ranger Sticky embossing powder.  Ranger gold foil sheet was quickly applied and burnished.
The same technique was used to stamp the hearts. 


A collage glue stick was randomly rubbed on the edge of card then gold foil rubbed over the top.
This gives a random gilded edge to the card.   Black Pitt pen doodling done to frame the page.
The sentiment was stamped with a Tim Holtz Custom Blend of Archival ink colours 
in Black Soot, Vintage Photo & Hickory Smoke, then clear heat embossed.
This has given a softer effect. Love how the foil has stuck to the page in random areas.


The card below's background is made from swiping Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade 
& Fossilized Amber Distress oxide inks across water colour paper.


Concord & 9th stamps & diecuts were used with Tree Branch Archival Ink.


Layering with Clear stamped acetate over Dark Brown kraft core cardstock
was used to finish the card.
