Floral Thinking Of You Card

Hi everyone

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

Thank you ladies for your lovely comments on my last post.

A quick post today to share a card I made recently.



The background was created using Distress Oxides and then the flowers stamped using Black permanent ink. I took some of the colour out from the background, from behind the flower heads, using a clean damp paint brush.  I then painted some of the flowers with inks. To bring it all together I  added some white paint splashes.

Thank you for looking.

Take care,

  1. I love this card Flo and I’ve only just discovered the Oxide inks, so I’m loving them too. Everything on this card works together so beautifully and I really like your colour palette. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

  2. Florence, I always like the stamps you use, but I am most enthralled with your background. I love the colors and the variegated way they adhered to the paper. This card is so beautiful – who wouldn’t love to get something like this to know they were being thought of. I hope you had a lovely weekend and are headed into a joyous week.

  3. You’ve managed very well to lift the colours from the Distress background, the flowers have clean colours and look gorgeous. xx

    1. Thank you Christine. Yes I did manage ok with this one. It’s not easy to remove the colour with them is it! The normal distress inks are easy peasy. I think it could have been the water color paper/card stock I used. The inks seems to sit on it rather than soak in. Pleased you like the card.

  4. Hi Florence, I have just a few of the Oxides and I have mostly just sponged with them and blended the colours. I have such a long list of things I want to try. I really like the little stamps you have used here, so pretty.

    1. Thank you Barb. I have had problems with the oxides directly applied to card with a sponge. This could be the card stock I am using. I have very, very limited choice. For me, I have found it easier to pat the ink onto a piece of plastic or an acrylic block, spritz it with water and then swish the card in the diluted ink. I do like them to stamp with on coated card stock and then emboss with clear powder. Saves buying special ink and different colours of embossing powder so I am pleased with that. Saves the pennies. One of the surprises for me was that some different colour combos don’t necessarily work as I thought they were going to and some colour combos seem to work better together than I thought they would. If that makes sense. A bit like a box of chocolates….you don’t know what you are going to get! 🙂 All good fun though.

  5. Such great fresh colours! And love the splashes’they really finish of the card! Enjoy the weekend; hope you’ll get some sunshine too! Hugs, Gerrina


  6. A truly beautiful card so bright and uplifting : ) Just perfect. I must try oxides one day, they look very interesting, your background is wonderful x


  7. The oxide background is really pretty Flo and I adore snakeshead fritillary flowers and the blue ones are pretty too, also the bright orangy red butterflies are so uplifting and fun. The white spattering finishes it perfectly too. x
