Playing with Distress Oxide Inks!

I have been shopping :)
I recently went to Michael's and they had the 
Distress Oxide inks on sale.
I purchased 7 of the first set of 12 and got to playing.
I have been watching Jennifer McGuire and others show
different techniques, so I tried most of them.
I will write a different post on the techniques I  tried,
but for today I wanted to share the cards I made.
Materials used:
paper: 100# Neenah 
Distress Oxide Inks
NUVO Drops
Wink of Stella - clear
Stamps set: Stampin Up Happy Birthday Everyone.
Other dies from my stash!

I hope you enjoyed them.
There will be more to come
as I venture into the Oxide Inks world!

Copic Tutorial: Background- Inside the window

Today we finish up the coloring!!
By adding some color to the inside of the house, through the window!

These are the combos I used!  
I wanted them to be light. 
So I tried light aquas, light greens and yellows

This is my favorite combo!!

Here I used the BG teens. I think its a bit too dark for my liking, 
which is why  tried BG 70 and 72 next. 
But that was not the look I wanted.

Here I am trying some light yellow and light green.
Took a while to get to this tone, but I like it!

Another look at all of them together!

Which one is your favorite background?

Come back tomorrow if you want to see the cards!!
All of them will be assembled for you to enjoy!

Copic Tutorial: Tones of Purple and a Blue


Today I am coloring the curtain using tones of purple!
Here are the color combos I chose:

The V-teens are cute as well.

I love the V00's - They are happy and bright!

This one is a darker combo. That BV08 is a deep purple.

I had to try my hand at a blue - and I loved it.
This is probably my most favorite Blue combo B20's .

This was a quick and easy post,
just to compare different purples.
Hope you enjoyed it!

See you tomorrow!!

Copic Tutorial: Tones of GREEN

Todays tutorial is comprised of tones of greens!
I used the same tones of E-40 shown here to color the stem and the acorn!
So we will be coloring the leaves on the pumpkins!
Here are the four combos!

I really like the vibrancy G14 brings to this combo!

These are the olive green tones, I like how regal they look!

I hope you liked the tones of GREENS!!

Next up:  Tones of purple for the curtains and maybe a little blue!

Copic Tutorial: Tons of Orange


I am back to share with you a few color combinations 
which you may find useful during this fall season!

Todays colors: ORANGE
I have three favorite is one of them!

Here are the combos I used on my pumpkins!

This is my lightest combo.
I chose not to use a darker color like E-09 to accentuate the shadows

I wanted to try a little bit more yellow on my pumpkin.

The last two color combos look exactly the same.
I love them both.
I like the darker tones of orange with a hint of yellow.

I hope you found a combo you liked best! tones of GREEN!!
