Distress Oxide Inks


Distress Oxide inked background with Penny Black’s beautiful Pure Iris stamped on top. Quietfire’s simply elegant Thinking of You stamps finishes off this sympathy card

Watercolouring with new Distress Oxide Ink colors


I heat embossed Stampin Up’s hydrangea Stamp from their best thoughts set in white on watercolour paper. I just received the new colors of Distress Oxide Inks today. So I used Shaded lilac, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch and put some  of each Color directly on acrylic block and used a water brush to pick up Color and paint the flowers. Sentiment from a recollection set heat embossed in silver. I cut the panel and added a strip of silver in between the two pieces and replaced them

Teal medley


I am using up some card starts that I have in a drawer that I started and didn’t know what to do with. The background is a script heat embossed watercolour piece that I swiped through Distress Inks on a craft mat. Happy birthday from Quietfire and Elizabeth Crafts cut on an alcohol inked piece that was done in teals. Butterfly is from Martha Stewart

Night sky


What is a day in the studio without at least one northern lights card?! Alcohol inks on Yupo, swiped. Greeting by Penny Black. Marvy’s snow marker used on the black panel and puffed up with the heat gun

Acrylic pour leftovers

After doing a dirty pour on an 8×8 canvas,(left), I  swiped a piece of Yupo through the leftovers and created a lovely peacock colored panel. Added a peacock stamp and a sentiment stamp from Heartfelt Creations and created the card on the right

Hibiscus stencil

5435EB9A-28C5-470E-AAB5-8A14A1F9E92CI used deep pink, purple and stream colors of Alcohol Inks on Yupo then put the hibiscus stencil (designs by Ryn) on top and using a felt topped applicator with more stream Alcohol ink and some blending solution, tapped it through the stencil creating the bleached design.
