Sisterhood of Crafters - Favorite Technique

Hello my friends!
Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme, chosen by Annie this time around, is:


 A technique that has become one of my all time favorites is creating
my own background panels using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks.
Whether it is the look of water as I have made today, or
the colors of Fall leaves or countless other themes, these are
so easy and fun to create!



 The dies I have used to create today's card are:

Little B - Mermaids

 Little B - Dies - Mermaids

 Sue Wilson - Fillables Collection - Underwater Accessories

 Sue Wilson Designs - Fillables Collection - Underwater Accessories

Paper Rose - Under the Sea Border 

Paper Rose - Dies - Under The Sea Border

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

  3. Wow, Darlene, your card is so cool! I really love the background you made. I don't do this enough and need to try it more. Have a great rest of your week, Sistah!!

  4. Fabulous underwater scene, Darlene. Those oxide inks look amazing as the water. They really are fun to play with. Love that silhouette diver!

  5. That is a perfect underwater scene with that background. I love it.

  6. That is a great technique that you do, I should do more myself but I have so much paper I am always trying to use that up :)
    Your under water theme is terrific, your dies make up a great scene!

  7. Oh, I love LOVE your background, Darlene! It's perfect for your underwater scene with the colors you chose. I'd have to say this is my favorite technique, too.
