Grungy Butterflies Spring Cards with Distress Oxide Inks by Gerry with video tutorial
Hi Rubber Dance friends, it's Gerry on the blog today. Did you see the Rubber Dance Moodboard Challenge for this month? Today I have some ideas for you on how you can use the mood board. There are a bunch of ways you can go about a mood board, just go with your feeling and don't just don't overthink it.
In the video I show some fun and easy techniques with distress Oxide inks to add colour on your backgrounds, with just one colour and also for a soft multi coloured background. And I show you how you can add texture in the same colour so make sure to watch video to see all techniques.
This is the Februari mood board with super cool winter pictures and a few colours to help you get started. When you have an inspirational board like this, you can go about it in lots of different ways.
You can pick one of the pictures with the colours in it and work with that, you can check out the textures or the shapes like the birds or the branches and use those with your stamps for instance.
Or you can just use the colours that are appealing to you and then make a fun mix of the most of your favorite colour and add bits of the other colours.
There are a lot of options so just have some fun playing around!
I stamped the Small Grungy Butterflies with Clear Embossing Ink and heat embossed them with Ranger Ink Embossing Powder - Black Sparkle.
For the background I used Distress Oxide inks in the colours Antique Linen, Stormy Sky and Rusty Hinge.I added the colours in different ways to add texture.
I used the the same distress inks to colour the butterflies with a Water Brushto get a softer colour.
After drying I finished with a layer of Nuvo - Aqua Shimmer - Glitter Glosson the butterflies to get a nice subtle sparkling layer.
These are two of the cards done in just one colour for the background with the layering of the different techniques.

Hi everyone, Verónica is here. Today I come with a colorful and fun series of Atc´s that I have made with the beautiful Textured Birds set . Let's go step by step, so you can cheer up and make your own.I hope you enjoy it and you like it, it is done with great affection. We cut watercolor paper that measures 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches, if you prefer in centimeters 8,9cm by 6,4 cm approximately. Now we create the backgrounds by coloring with watercolors, pigments, or inks. I have used pigments dissolved in water, to give it a watercolor effect. When they are ready and dry we apply textured paste with some stencils that we like. In my case Distress Textured Paste (crackle). We can use the embossing gun to speed up the process or let it dry. We continue, we are going to stamp these adorable and cute little birds with a waterproof ink. Comes one of the most relaxing and fun parts, the coloring. You can use what you have or what you are used to
