We're having fun using wood elements on our projects this month at 613 Avenue Create. I looked through my stash and found some wooden embellishments that are really cute. But I have no idea where I got them - that's how long I've had them. Do you have things like that in your stash??
My card is quite CAS - a Distress Oxide background, with a simple sentiment and a wooden embellishment. But I do love how it turned out.
I am not ashamed to say that I am sooo late in getting onboard the Oxide Distress Ink bandwagon. I picked up my first one a couple of months ago at Scrapbook Expo. I only got one because it was on sale and by the time I got to that particular booth, there was only one color left. I picked it up on a whim to finally see what all the hoopla was about.
I had seen a lot of videos, but things never go as well for me as they do on whatever video I watch so I saw no reason to buy the Oxides. I have problems with regular Distress Inks, although my blending has improved. To my utter surprise, the Oxide pad was super easy to blend! I absolutely love using them. Since I am probably one of the last crafters on earth to try them, I will not bore you with any details except to say that I am glad I finally gave them a try. I got some on sale from Joann's and Hobby Lobby and now plan to use them a lot.
Here's my card:
I blended Distress Oxides on white card stock. After trimming the panel, I sprayed it with water using my Distress Sprayer, and attached it to a kraft card base. I adhered the wooden embellishment and stamped the sentiment using my MISTI. I really like the colors behind the openings in the wood. Done!
