Distress Oxide Ink Blending Combos - Week 5

Hello, here is my post for week 5 of the 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 5 of Kristina's colour blending can be found here. This week's selection concentrates on shades of blue. I have used my blends to make some cards for Mothering Sunday which is fast approaching.

Oxide Combo 1 - Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch

For the first card I used two different Tim Holtz Sizzix thinlits die sets (Wildflowers and Wildflower Stems #2), picking the dies that looked most like lavender. I cut as many as I could from the blended card, after flipping it upside-down. I tied them in a bunch with a narrow ribbon and then attached them to the card with some wet glue. My greeting is made with another Crafter's Companion die and some silver card. I added a touch of Stickles for a little sparkle.

Oxide Combo 2 - Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Chipped Sapphire

For this first card I used a stamp from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden set. I stamped it three times with Black Archival Ink. I made a mask by stamping onto scrap paper and cutting the shape out. This allowed me to add the stems to the flowers without spoiling the blooms. I lifted some colour from the images using a paintbrush and some water. I sprinkled a little water over the whole piece. I cut the greeting with a Crafter's Companion die and the off cut from the blended card.

Oxide Combo 3 -
Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon.

For this card I used one for the Tim Holtz Wildflowers die set to cut a selection of flowers from the blended card. As before I tied them in a bunch with narrow ribbon. I cut 'Mum' with another Crafter's Companion die.

Oxide Combo 4 - Scattered Straw, Broken China, Seedless Preserves.

For my last card of the week, I cut a circle with a stitched circle die from a Lil' Inker Designs. Then I die cut two stems in white card, using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits set - Wildflower Stems #2. The Crafter's Companion greeting was cut from the leftover blended card.

Thanks for looking, I will be back with week 6 as soon as the cards are made.
