Reverse Confetti Challenge: Distress Oxide

Reverse Confetti Challenge + Distress Oxide Water-Mark with Stencil Technique (

I love, love, love Distress Oxide Inks! They are at the top of my favorite inks to use! I love playing with color combinations and different techniques. I’ve seen card makers use water and stencils with Oxide Inks so I decided to give it a go and I love the results!

The first card that I created is for the Reverse Confetti Sketch Challenge. For my card, I blended Broken China and Peeled Paint onto a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of Neenah white cardstock. I then took my Pointed Out Stencil by Reverse Confetti, spritzed it with regular tap water and then turned it over onto my inked panel. I ended up doing it twice because the first time, I just laid it on the inked background without pressing it down and it didn’t work very well. I found that pressing the stencil on the inked background and dabbing it with a cloth worked much better. I heat set it with my heat gun and cut it down 1/8 inch on all sides. I adhered it to a piece of gray cardstock with Scor-tape.

I cut a strip of vellum that was a little over 2 inches wide, rapped it around the panel and secured it to the back with the same Scor-tape. Then I added a piece of gray cardstock to the front that I cut I scored with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Border die and secured it to the front of the card.

For the main focal point and sentiment, I stamped the ‘You Are One-Of-A-Kind’ stamp from the Reverse Confetti Butterfly Dreams stamp set onto white cardstock with Broken China. I used my Misti so I could stamp the image twice in order to get a nice deep blue. Then I cleaned my stamp off and stamped the same image using VersaMark ink. I heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder, let it cool and then repeated the process which gave me a nice, smooth finish. I repeated this process with 3 of the little butterflies from the same set. I then fussy cut them all out leaving a little white around each stamped butterfly and then placed them on my panel with foam squares. Then I adhered the entire panel to a top folding 4.25 x 5.5 inch white card.

To finish it off, I added some clear Nuvo crystal Drops.

Here are the other two panels that I made. This first one is Worn Lipstick with Fossilized Amber.

For this one, I just used Walnut Stain and for both, I used the Reverse Confetti Leaf Lattice stencil which has to be one of my favorite stencils.

I’m planning on turning these into cards as well and will post them when they are finished.

Thanks for stopping by!
