Botanical at Try it on Tuesday





Hello,  today sees the start of a new Challenge at Try it on Tuesday and for this fortnight it's Botanical.  So anything with flowers, trees, leaves, plants - yes, you get the idea.

I've been playing with the Oxide inks again, but this time I used a blending tool with Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo onto my card to create my watery landscape.  I've used Tim Holtz die cut wildflowers and the sentiment is from a Jofy set.  There's also a little mesh and script stamping on the background.

The rest of the DT have some amazing inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

I am entering this at:
  Stamping Sensations - Close to Nature
  City Crafter - In Bloom

Thanks for calling in, I do appreciate it.

I've been playing with them as well this week Avril, they do give a rather nice and different finish. It's a super background you created with them and the subtle wire effects and then the super silhouette flowers.

Lovely to see you at Stamping Sensations, many thanks for joining us.

You are showing me just how versatile the DOX are, and have done a beautiful job blending these colors. Love the splashes and this is a gorgeous background for the flower stems. I love the detail of the white doodling you've added to the silhouettes! You are so talented! Hugs!
