JOFY Trees - Getting My Fussy Out

Hiya! Sorry if you're bored of the JOFY trees, but as the saying apparently goes, I need to get my fussy out... According to my lovely crafty mate Linda and my lovely Aunt Sue, 'Getting your fussy out' is a common saying, which means getting it out of your system. However, I have never met anyone else who has ever heard this saying, and it sounds a bit rude to me, so be careful who you say it to. Maybe it's an old Nottingham saying that has fallen out of use, who knows!

Anyway, I tried to make some oxide backgrounds based on 3 colour challenges, with mixed results! But I love how they have turned out, anyway.

For this one, I used Peacock Feathers Distress ink, Bottle Adirondack ink and Platinum Planet Brilliance ink to create the background for the trees, and added detail with a glitter pen and silver Nuvo Drops. I'm entering this one in the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge:

For this one, I used Faded Jeans, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks, but as the colours have blended a little, there's actually some green on there too! But as I only used the colours in the challenge (despite what I ended up with), I'm still going to enter it in the Paper Play challenge, and hope they'll let me off with that!

I made this one with Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks, Peacock Distress ink and Bottle Adirondack ink. I added gold Nuvo Drops, but they have taken up the colour of the ink in places, which I quite like and wish I could say it was deliberate... I'm entering this one in the Shopping Our Stash challenge:

I apologize for being so late with my comment about this gorgeous cards, you know how it goes sometimes, Life throws you some curves.....
But I adore this little Christmas Trees and the fact that the Nuvo metallic drops took the colors of the trees, that looks amazing. Deliberate or not, it's a fabulous look.
Thank you for sharing with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope you play again next time.
