Christmas 2017 Series - Distress Oxide Background Cards

Posted on November 17, 2017 at 6:15 PM



Following on from an earlier post where we created some gorgeous Distress Oxide Tissue Paper backgrounds, as promised here are a couple of cards made using them.




This beautiful red and orange background with copper sprays worked perfectly with this old faithful Stamp It Stamp, embossed with black embossing powder. Actually, I made the mistake of using Distress Embossing Powder which of course rubs off, so I had to seal it with some laquer.




The blue background with silver spray worked nicely with another Stamp It stamp and this time with white embossing powder and a greeting




The green background with gold spray inks was a challenge to use and I messed the stamping up twice, to I decided to work with the small piece that I had left and simply added a die cut ornament and some ribbon which I was much happier with. One of the messed up ones is shown below.




I just wasn't happy with this one at all. Not a great photo but I tried to stamp the tree and emboss in black but the result was too harsh, so I decided to add a bit of white embossing powder on the top to give a snow effect. Yuck! Straight in the bin with that one and a waste of a beautiful green and gold tissue background which was super annoying!

 

Verdict: The stamps did seem to work quite well on this background overall but you do need to be careful choosing which one and which ink to use, to avoid overpowering the background. Join me again soon for another post in our Christmas Series, where we will be making some lovely decorated baubles.
