Black on black

Thought I'd have another experiment with my distress oxide inks and as a starting point found a challenge to use as a starting point. I used orange inks to create a sunset sky blending the inks together from lighter deep yellowy orange shades to deeper orange shades. I created the setting sun by using an open studio circle die and a water pen to remove the ink dabbing with a tissue to remove the colour. To add the hazy clouds I just drew lines again with the water pen removing the colour.

I used several more memory box dies, cattail landscape die, prairie grass die, elegant seashore birds and springtime bunnies, all cut in black glossy card and arranged them to create a scene. 

I finished the card by mounting the panel on a black glossy card base. no sentiment as yet as I feel its a card that could be used for many different occasions and so will add an appropriate sentiment when I use the card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Outside the box - black and orange

crafty friends - anything goes

creative fingers - anything goes

OLLCB- dies

HLS - anything with dies
