Hi! I decided to make a background with distress oxides, using the colours in the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. The closest colours I had were Peeled Paint, Wilted Violet and Spiced Marmalade. I smooshed them onto my plastic mat, spritzed with water, and dragged my card through the inks. I dried the card, then splodged more ink on, repeating this a few times. I dropped a few water droplets onto it, and dried it again. I love the look of the resultant colour splodges, but do they still meet the requirements of a colour challenge? I used only the 3 colours, and I can still pick them out, but they have also merged and blended, and the oxides create a lovely rusty look. So I'm not sure if it's ok or not for the challenge, but I carried on anyway. I was itching to use one of the dies I bought when I got the Big Shot, so I ran it through the machine with some white hammered card, because I like the texture. I decided not to paint the die cut, except for the hare's eye, to give it a clean look against the oxides. I stuck it to the oxides background, then spritzed with Glimmer Mist, and then layered it on black and then purple cardstock.
I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
