Oxide inks and diecuts.

Hi everyone, I did some experimenting with distress oxide inks on watercolour paper, it was great fun!
I did some die cutting to make use of them, and am entering a few challenges.

At Outside the Box the theme is celebrating Mum, plenty of time to get ready for mother's day.
I've used Memory Box dies, fairytale flower border and moonlight butterfly.

AAA Cards where the theme is die cuts. 

I've inlaid the border die, so this fits the theme at CAS Mixup Card Challenge.
I've used this technique, stamping, wet embossing, vellum and smooshing with distress oxide inks.
I won the stamp when Darnell was having a destash, I love this font so thank you again Darnell

At Simon Says Stamp Monday, it's things with wings.

  3. Beautiful! I just got a few Oxide inks and played once. They do blend so wonderful and easy. Your card is lovely. That MB fairy tale die is lovely.

  4. Beautiful colors, Cathy! I love the flower border and the different surface the oxide ink gives. I can see it very well on the butterfly! A beautiful card! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at CAS Mix Up!

  5. Beautiful Cathy. Those dies cuts are fabulous made from your oxide panels.

  6. A beautiful design, Cathy! I love your watercoloured flower sprig and butterfly. The oxide inks have such different colours. I really need to get them! :) Great job with inlaying your pretty watercoloured leaves and flowers. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  7. A very beautiful card Cathy, the colours are gorgeous and so well blended.

  9. Such a pretty card, love the oxides. Great effect and colors. Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Sandra

  10. I fell in love with this butterfly for lacking a clear pattern on the wings. Thanks to that he looks like a Pseudophilotes vicrama ( in polish modraszek). And I love the modraszki. Great card !!

  11. Beautiful card, that inlay is truly rich in colour and the butterfly to match is perfect.
