With Love


So........I've been experimenting with coloring flowers by sponging on distress oxides, and I'm loving how the colors blend into each other on these bright blooms.

To create my flowers I:
  • I stamped the Oakberry Lane Blossoms in fossilized amber distress ink on cream card stock.
  • After die cutting, I inked the entire flower with squeezed lemonade distress oxide. 
  • Then I inked the petals in wild honey distress oxide, and finally the tips in candied apple distress oxide.
The red ink is what made them vibrant looking, and I love how it blends into the wild honey perfectly.
