Find beauty in all things...Distress Oxides


This was a really fun make.  I began with the mushrooms.  I die cut them, then colored with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides.  For the red mushrooms I saved the dots to replace once I colored the main cap red.  I completely covered the paper I used for the grassy hills and spritzed with water before die cutting.  I took a short cut with the sky, it is a very old printed paper, I am talking probably 15 years old!  Finally, I highlighted the white dots on the red mushrooms with a pearl drop.




Ingredients:
Frantic Stamper Stitched grassy hill dies
Taylored Expressions mushroom dies
Creative Memories water color paper
Distress Oxide inks: Candied Apple, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint
Pearl drops
white card stock

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
