Oxides Ink on Black

Hello,  I've had another little play with the Oxide Inks although nothing got quite finished, as in the middle I decided to try the Oxide inks onto a scrap of black card - just to see exactly how good the colours were.
I used Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint through the mini Floral stencil and although the colours are paler - I think the Worn Lipstick looks more like Milled Lavender, I love the chalky effect.
This was just a scrap, but I thought it looked too nice, so with some Tiny Tattered floral roses, ribbon and lace spritzed with Milled Lavender, it's now a pretty gift tag.  The little label was stamped with Worn Lipstick Oxide ink.  I did try another, which I clear embossed, but the colour seemed to fade.

Thanks for calling in,
Have a lovely weekend,

Love the result, and sure doesn't look like scrap to me, too nice to dice out. I think the colours look so soft and feminine on this. Great oxide playing.x ♥[aNNie]
