Today I got out my Oxide Ink reinkers to play around with some backgrounds.
All stamps and chipboard used are from KinderKreations
I used the reinkers but the new Oxide sprays would work just as well.
I put a little drop of colour onto my messy mat and tap the stamp over the top to cover in ink.
Then just stamp onto your page. I find it gives a lovely soft water colour distress effect.
For the first page I used marshmallow cardstock as it is a heavier weight and takes mixed media techniques well.
Here is the finished layout.
I then thought what would it look like on water colour paper as the oxide is designed to react well with water.
I took a piece of 12x12 water colour paper and spritzed it with water and then stamped on it the same as above. As expected it bled into the paper but ended up a bit too blury.
So I dried it off and took a darker colour for the flowers and leaves and did a crisp stamp over the top. So I ended up with like a shadow effect.
This is my finished layout with this page.
I finished off the layout with some Vicki Boutin and Simple stories ephemera and stickers.
Thanks for looking.
