And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Oxide Ink Addiction

Good morning, friends!  I have a confession...I am totally addicted to my new Oxide Inks.  Can't stop using them...they are so beautiful and so much fun!

Creative Nugget:  The same Oxide inks were used for all the panels, but were very watered down for the side panel.  The inks were even sponged through the new Lattice Background Die by ODBD which was used as a stencil, then spritzed with more water.  Love how the Wilted Violet Oxide ink even shows up when the dandelions from the To My Friend set was stamped on the dark background. Splatters of acrylic paint, white paint pen, and ribbon tinted with the ink were added to finish the card.  ODBD Custom dies that were used include Pierced Rectangles, Pierced Squares, Squares, and Layered Lacey Squares.

Creative Nugget:  A Combination of Oxide inks and regular Distress inks were used to color the paper used for the rose, for the light panel, and for the sentiment which is from the new Lovely Flower stamp set.  The patterned paper is from the Cozy Quilt Collection.  I'm still working on getting my roses shaped better, but the new Rose and Rose Leaves dies by ODBD are fun to use!  Other dies used include Pierced Rectangles, Double Stitched Rectangles, Pennant Flags, Lavish Layers, and Fancy Fan.  The design for this card comes from my sketch today on Splitcoaststampers, SC639.

These cards will also be submitted for the following challenges:

We are having a beautiful spring day today...hope you get to enjoy it!
