Hey friends! I am back again with a couple of cards and a video. I saw a post by Laura on the Tim Holtz Addicts Facebook group a couple of weeks ago and it just INSPIRED me. She created some backgrounds using just two Distress Oxide sprays and I screenshot her post and ended up making my cards today inspired by her post. You can follow her on Instagram HERE <------click!

So the Distress Oxide Sprays in question - Hickory Smoke and Gathered Twigs. I've used both on various projects many, many times. But JUST those two together? I never would have thought of it. But look:


I sprayed some Mixed Media Heavystock with water and then sprayed the Hickory Smoke and Gathered Twigs Oxide Sprays and moved them around a bit before letting them dry. They ended up creating this almost-suede looking background that I just LOVE. 


I couldn't resist using my favorite oldie-but-goodie Simon Says Stamp Wildflowers stamp set on these cards. I inked up the stamp with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink and heat embossed it with Hickory Smoke Embossing Glaze and the result is SO pretty. Then I added gold splatter of course 😉.


On the insides of the cards I stamped the Wildflowers image again with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink and then added a sentiment from the XL Greetings 2 stamp set with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink. I used the Flickering Butterflies wafer die and had die cut some Lawn Fawn Pearlescent vellum that I'd tinted with an E23 Copic marker. I added those to the outside and inside of the cards and that was it!
