I don't know about you, but I have a 'list' of techniques in addition to papers, paints, inks, etc., that I want to use and I'm just now getting to using Oxide Inks on black cardstock. The look is so interesting, like velvet. When I was growing up, I loved the paint by numbers paint sets and some were velvet. Am I dating myself? lol
I used a smooth black cardstock from Paper Temptress called Neenah Super Smooth Black. The ink blended on this cardstock perfectly. I used Wilted Violet, Fossilized Amber, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans. I used the jumbo sponge daubers with a Tim Holtz stencil called, Splashes and sponged it on, doing two layers. Next I spritzed with water but I accidentally used the bottle of water I have with the Pearl Perfect Pearls mixed in. I do love the result, so shimmery! Sometimes my accidents turn into beauties, other times, not so much. :)
I used Gina K Designs Wilted Violet cardstock on bottom layer of card. I cut out a Hello word die from Honeybee Stamps, Gather Together set and inked it up with Wilted Violet to match background. I cut out 3 or 4 to give it some dimension using Gina K Designs Heavy Base Weight White cardstock. This is the shadow part of the die.
Next I cut out the letters in Hello and decided to use the new WOW Embossing Glitter Powder called Persian Indigo since I had purple blue colors in the card. I used tweezers and carefully pressed into an embossing ink pad and then dipped into the glitter embossing powder and heat set, repeating 3-4 times to get really good coverage.
I thought vellum would be the best way to adhere the Hello word die so I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out and I wrapped it around card layer and adhered it tightly. I used a Zig Glue Pen to glue the word die shadow and letters.
I think this card turned out so pretty! I hope you'll try oxide inks on black cardstock if you haven't already.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
