Whimsy Tree with Distress Oxides

Happy Monday and I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I’m over on the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamp blog with a card I made using Distress Oxides on photo paper.

I love this technique of putting a bunch of distress oxides on a craft mat and then using photo paper to pick up the colors. Once the ink dries, take a soft cloth and rub off the chalky portion of the ink and you’re left with a bright and brilliant background. For more details on how to create these backgrounds check out this post.

I thought this Whimsy Tree would be the perfect image for this background. I stamped it in tree in Ranger Distress Archival Dusty Concord so that it wouldn’t smear on the photo paper. I added white dots to the image to highlight the details of this beautiful stamp.

I finished my card with this sentiment which is perfect for a beautiful tree and added some Nuvo drops around the edges. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.
