City Crafter #360

Hello and good morning!

It's my turn to host this
weeks' challenge at the City Crafter.
I picked the theme:
"You can do it"

 Create your own background using your, inks, 
paints, markers, embossing paste
 and/or stamps. 
Choose your favorite colours and use 
your favorite technique(s). 

But most important:  have fun!

As much as I love CAS cards 
with lots of white
I also love colour. 
I am a fan of anything watercolour, 
inks, paints and mixed media. 
A few weeks ago I bought a few new Oxide inks
and this is my card using Oxide ink:

Using ink, adding water, 
heat dry with my heat tool.
And repeat for about 5 times:)
Once I finished my background
 I added a few circle stamps,
 a dragonfly and a sentiment.
The twine and sequins are
 the finishing touch:)

You can find more inspiration
from the other 
team members on our blog.

Thanks for stopping by 
enjoy your day!

Such beautiful colours! Stunning effects on this card. I've just bought 3 Oxide inks - slightly random colours as most of them were sold out everywhere I looked - but not had chance to try them yet.

Omgosh, stunning! Absolutely love the depth and richness of that background! What do you think of the oxides?
Ik had hem niet meteen herkent als kaart van jou (geen wit?!!) maar wel prachtig, bijna sprookjesachtig en toch CAS.. super!
