Use Those Distress Oxide Spray

Hello friends!

Can you believe that February is over (almost)? I am stopping by with a VERY colorful post. With the current events and winter blue, it is easy to get us down in the dump. However, if you allow me to indulge you with some colorful shape cards, this post is it!

 If you have followed me for a while now, you'd know that I LOVE to create my own color paper. I know Color Spray bottles may  not everyone's favorite kind of mediums. But it is certainly one of my favorite things! 

always in my heart

 It is SO relaxing to spay color mist into the watercolor paper. There is no right or wrong. All you need to do is to avoid brown muddle-like colors. It is so very Zen!

you are the best

 I like to do this before heading to bed. It put me in a calm mood and I look forward to getting up to see the colorful result in the morning! Life can't get better than that!?

 Once I am left with my DIP paper, I die cut away.... after arranging and assembling. These butterfly shape cards are truly rewarding. Unfortunately the die I used here are sold out everywhere (no wonder!). There are a few others that are still available.

 I do want to mention that Tim Holtz just revealed the latest Distress Oxide... and ME LIKEY! I do not own Saltwater Taffy yet. However, I will acquire as soon as I get a chance. I am listing it below in case you are interested.


 These are the 3 butterfly shape cards that I created. Hope you love them! Thanks for stopping by!

Great pages created for color. I don't use sprays much, but might reconsider trying out a couple of colors what work well together.
