Hello Crafty Friends!
This week I am super excited to have a guest project up on the Ranger Ink blog. Like many of you, I have been eagerly anticipating getting my hands on the new Distress Oxide ink pads, and curious to give them a whirl. This fun garden journal-inspired art tag features one of my all-time favorite Distress color combos in the new Oxide version, and an exploration of some of the ways you can use these new ink pads.
I know you all have seen me using the new Tim Holtz Scroll die as leafy greens in some of my recent projects, and today I’m continuing that theme in this nature-inspired tag. Love them mixed with the Wildflower dies, and now that there are two sets of the flowers, there are double the possibilities of gardens you can create. Sure wish mine looked like this!
The real fun of this tag, though, is the cool background I made with the new Oxide inks. I tried ink blending with the ink blending tool, as well as swiping the tag through Oxide inks mixed with water. Then I stenciled with the inks, watercolored the flowers and greens, and even stamped, too. And then shabbied the tag with Opaque Crackle Texture Paste, ink, and Distress Crayon.
There’s also lots of new goodies from Tim’s Creativation 2017 release, including the new Memoranda Paper Stash, Clipping Stickers, Index Clips, and Quote Chips. I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial up on the Ranger Ink blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
