Distress Oxide Ink Blending Combos - Week 3

Today I'm here with some more Distress Oxide ink blending combinations as set out by Kristina Werner's blog. You will find all the details and videos there to inspire you.  Week 3 of Kristina's colour blending can be found here. This week's selection concentrates on browns, greys and black.

I made my samples big enough to make into cards. I have treated them all with different techniques. For the blends I used Distress Oxide Inks, Mini Round Blending Tools and foam pads all purchased from Papermaze. I purchased the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White from Crafter's Companion.

Oxide Combo 1 - Scattered Straw, Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs

To make this card I used a Kraft card blank and mounted the blended card onto some grey Bazzill.
Then I cut a coffee cup using the Fresh Brewed Sizzix Bigz die from Tim Holtz. I cut this with some corrugated card, and Bazzill scraps in grey and white. I cut a heart from white card and inked this lightly with some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide. Then with sentiment stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie, I stamped and heat embossed in black onto a scrap of the blended card. I sprinkled a few drops of water onto the big heart.

Oxide Combo 2 -
Old Paper, Evergreen Bough, Black Soot

For this card I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits die set - Swirling Stars, cutting the stars from the blended card. This was mounted onto silver miri card. The greeting is a Tim Holtz rubber stamp,finishing off with some gems to add extra sparkle.

Oxide Combo 3 - Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans

For the third card I die cut  the flowers in black Bazzill with Memory Box dies - Chloe Stem and Chandra Stem. I also cut a greeting and punched some butterflies (Martha Stewart).
Gems were added to the flowers and white Nuvo Crystal drops to the card and butterflies.

Oxide Combo 4 - Picked Raspberry, Aged Mahogany, Ground Espresso

For this Valentine card I used some Tonic Studios heart dies and Crafter's Companion greetings dies, all tied up with a scrap of ribbon.

Back with the next four cards soon.
Thanks for looking
