Hi all, it’s Vicki.  Today I am using the new Ranger Oxide Inks to make a background panel for my card.  These inks are pretty awesome.

Here is the finished card:

To make the background, here are the steps;

Step 1 – Smash the inks onto your craft sheet.

Step 2 – spritzed with water so that the ink beads up

Step 3 – laying the DRY water color paper panel over the ink, lightly press into the inks ONCE.

HINT:  Wet on wet will equal blending, wet on dry will equal a layer.

[For some blending, I did spray my panel with water and then I dried it]

HINT:  Wet on wet will equal blending, wet on dry will equal a layer.  Dry your layer with a heat gun, and repeat the process [layer upon layer] until you get the color you want.  (I did add additional ink onto my craft work sheet to acheive the color vividness that I wanted.)

Here is the final panel:

These inks are awesome!  And, the possibilities are endless.  In my case, I went to [my friend] Pinterest for a card sketch, and completed my card using Inspired By Stamping’s Australian Nature, and embossed a sentiment from Words of Inspiration II on a piece of vellum.

Have you broken under the on-slot of blogs using the new Ranger Oxide Inks, and bought them?  I am happy I did!  They worked beautifully with Inspired By Stamping products.  And, by the way – this is my first time using them!

See you next month~

    Thanks Vicki … am loving these DI oxides and the layering you get with them. I’ve bought two, but not rushing my purchase and will get others as do more research and $ permit. I don’t ever get complete sets, just what I think will work fir me. I do love that Australian Nature set too … great Stamping.
    Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
