Distress Oxide, Chevrons and Cacti :D


A punny pair of cacti themed cards using another one of the NEW Creative Stencils from Craft Stash, the Chevron stencil :D I also used the wonderful cacti stamps from the Woodware Succulent stamp set, and to give them some character, I added on some glasses and a mustache from the Pretty Quick Silhouette Collection Male Sentiments stamp set (also available from CraftStash :D) Then I added the sentiments from the Woodware set into some Speech bubbles from the Lawn Fawn A Birdie Told Me stamp set :D :D :D

To create the background, I was literally just having fun experimenting with my Distress Oxides :D I think this was only the 2nd or 3rd time I'd used them, so I was experimenting, using the ghosting technique, and then using the stencil as a stamp, and ink blending through the stencil too :D Stencils are sooo versatile and this new range from CraftStash has some truly fabulous designs in it :D Hope you liked the video :D
