I wanted to experiment with Distress Oxide Inks on Kraft Cardstock.

I firstly applied Broken China & Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink
through a Tim Holtz Flourish Stencil onto kraft cardstock.
It reminded me of an underwater scene, so I decided to make a card with that theme.

Hero Arts Stamps were used with Faded Jeans & Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks
for the Sea Horses, Starfish & Shells.  Some were clear heat embossed
before colouring with Distress Oxide Inks & the Water colour Brush.
The effect is quite subtle & soft.

I added interest by die cutting & layering the background with Sizzix Stitched Oval Thinlits,
& highlights & splatters of Antique Bronze Distress Stain.
The sentiment is a Sizzix Thinlit die cut from the Teal card stock
& given dimension with Glossy Accents.

The Stamped images were fussy cut & shaped slightly,
before grouping in a cluster & elevated with foam dots.
Hope you are inspired to play with these inks soon.

Cheers Deb
