Bobbi Smith shares a fun friendship card featuring Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Sprays!     Create a colorful, dimensional background by layering inks and adding texture with White Gesso.

Instructions

Distress Oxide Spray Card Step 1

Step 1: Start by spritzing a sheet of Distress Watercolor Cardstock with water using a Distress Sprayer. This will help the color wick after spraying the Distress Oxide Spray. Shake the Distress Oxide Spray vigorously to mix color well before each use. Then spritz color onto wet Distress Watercolor Cardstock, leaving a little white space in the upper right side. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Broken China.

Distress Oxide Spray Card Step 6

Step 6: Cut a strip of Distress Watercolor Cardstock 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches. Then die cut the silhouette of the flower from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlits Wildflower Stems set. This is the one I chose. Save the inner die cut, you can use that on a different project.

    Wish we had a video showing how you did it. I went to your blog and it said “not secure” so left. Love the background, though.
