This is a card I made for a guy.
This background was also created while playing around with the Oxide Layered stamping. However this is not that exactly. It is just stamping with Oxide ink. I stamped with Hickory Smoke Oxide Distress ink using a Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz stamp Mesh (CMS221) on the dark blue paper. The card base gray paper was from my stash and it matches the Hickory Smoke Oxide ink pretty darn close. I tried several grays from light to darker.
The gnome is a stamp from Simon Says Stamp from a set called Secret Garden (SSS101629). Such a cute little gnome. I colored him with Copics. His belt and buttons are colored with a silver Pen Touch pen. I am not sure, now that I look at it, why I didn’t color the belt black and the buckle silver.
For the sentiment I applied Hickory Smoke Oxide ink direct to paper using the ink pad. Then I stamped the frame and sentiment over that possibly with Versafine onyx black ink. They are both from Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz set Saying Stuff (THJ009). I die cut the frame.
