Oxides background for cards #3

Do you remember the background masterboards I made as my first outing using the new Distress Oxides (here if you missed it) and then the two cards I made using some of it? (Again here and here if you missed those too). But waste not, want not I wasn't going to let the pieces left over go into the bit box yet and I needed a couple of cards to send to to lovely friends who had sent me happy parcels in the post, so I put them to good use. I'm using these as my project for the Country View Crafts project blog today, so please pop over there to see more details and photos.



Thanks for stopping by.

Two beautful cards - this is such an artsy watercolour look with this Oxides - but I guess this is just you and your skills that make them looking so artsy!

Brenda, you are the poster child for Oxides! No one gets the beautiful backgrounds from these inky squares like you do! Adding stenciling, stamping and those awesome butterflies yielded two very lovely cards! I know the recipients were so pleased! Hugs!

think we all need to get back into sending thank you cards, especially when they look as beautiful as yours. It's too easy to just text or pm people these days XXX
