2017 #12 Hybrid inks: Autumn box

2017 Topic #12 Hybrid inks

Hello everyone, It's Etsuko with you and it's wonderful to be back here on the PA blog tonight. I'd like to share with you the Autumn box project.

Theme is hybrid and I decided to use distress oxide ink pad with Raquel's beautiful new release line. First I imagined a vivid colours design but now is the end of August, so I decided to autumn colours. I was using it with a light brown line with a focus on distress oxide new color antique linen. And I tried using soldering metal to the focal point.

First I prepared 6 x 6 inch shadow box as the body and I cut the white paper of the same size around the box. (Before preparing paper I applied white gesso to the box and tried the effect of oxide but I could not get good results.)

I stamped Allison's quote stamp on a tissue paper, and tore it apart then I stuck randomly on the background.

I used white embossing powder by ESC05 leaf stamp, and Tim's Wrinkle-Free technique with oxides on white paper for the box frame.  Also I used PS 66 stencil on the surplus paper with grunge paste, when it dried I stamped ESC 04, ESC 05 stamps by potting soil archival.

The papers for the edges inside the box.

Finally I stamped ESC05 big mushroom on the hot soldering metal and I used alcohol ink and treasure gold. Then I stuck every peaces onto the box.

Raquel's all new stamps are very beautiful and she has posting many useful creations on her blog and youtube site.

Distress Oxide ink always delivers amazing results and entertains me, the combination of colors will spread the imagination. Why don't you try it?
Thank you so much joining me and hope you like it. I look forward to meeting you soon!!
