Blue and Ochre with Oxides

Today, I took the wrappers from the Oxides! Scary, but they have been calling to me.
I did lots of smooshing and spraying and dabbing and adding distress inks. Kept layering and drying and using up lots of paper.

I learned by playing and really enjoyed myself.
I chose to use blues and ochres in order to play once again in the PaperArtsy challenge.
As you can see, some green crept in as I was introducing distress inks. 
Nevertheless, I was pleased with this background and used one of my favourite stamps from HP1005, stamping with BluePrint Sketch Distress ink, and a sentiment from ELB28.
I finished off with a bit of bling using Stickles. 
Thanks to Corrie Herriman for redirecting me to TH instructive video and to Alison Bomber for tempting me to buy the Oxides!
