Hello and welcome to our third stop of this month's Destination Inspiration. Nikki here to share my creation with our selection of product, technique, colour and substrate.
Product : Distress Oxide
Technique : Faded Layers
Colour : Blues
Substrate : White Card
We have seen some fabulous designs from Anne and Sara Emily and now it is my turn! I think we have all struggled a little bit with the Faded Layers technique!
I began with my Faded Layers panel, at this point I wasn't sure where I was going but just wanted to make sure I could get an effect! It is subtle but hopefully you can see it.
I added a few blue toned alcohol inks onto glossy card - I added a tiny bit of a rusty colour after this photo for a bit of contrast. Next I selected a stencil and worked on removing to reveal the 'fade'!
I then moved onto my distress oxides - I now had a plan to create a layered Christmas card.
A little bit of background stamping in archival before some oxide was added to my craft mat and spritzed. I lay my card into it to get lots of lovely splodges!
Next I added a some pumice stone DI all over the card and spritzed with water and threw droplets on the card to remove some of both inks.
I then stamped with distress oxide ink and spritzed again to soften the stamped images.
I needed blue layers for matt and layering so took the same DO and sponged around the edge of the cut to size card. I later added a little sponged paint too - as I needed a slightly darker blue to tone with the Faded Layers alcohol ink panel.
I die cut a tree and reindeer from kraftcore card and embossed with a dots folder. I then sponged paint over to tone down the colour and highlight the raised surface.
I stamped my greeting on a scrap of the alcohol ink panel in Versamark and embossed in white.
