Green and…blue leaves?

Hi everyone!

I’ve been playing with my Distress Oxide inks and Color Bursts today and had great fun making different backgrounds for future projects. It was my first time using colour bursts! Oh my! They are amazing! I only have a couple of colours (at the moment) so I decided to combine them with my distress oxide inks to see what happened – love the effect!

I used one of my backgrounds to make this card. Believe it or not, I actually used Lucky Clover distress oxide ink here but somehow it looks much lighter in places – almost like Cracked Pistachio. Weird, but I like it!

I used a fabulous background die from Altenew and inlaid the pieces that I’d cut from my coloured background into a white die cut panel. To finish it off, I added a small piece of vellum and a greeting cut using some of the Altenew inline alpha set.

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge – blue, green and white make up this week’s colour combo!

Thanks for stopping by!
