Hello Everyone..

First off thank you so much for your love and thoughts over my cat Holly..I was so deeply touched here and on Facebook with all your comments and good wishes..

She is doing so much better, that this morning the vet has taken out her IV line, keeping her for one more day [today] and night, then she can come home.

So onto todays projects..

When  I went on my shopping spree without getting out of my chair!!..I also bought the new set of Distress Oxide inks and played quite a bit with them..

Real simple cards...and get your sunglasses ready...

These colours were..Mustard Seed & Rip Persimmon

Mustard Seed & Crushed Olive..

I like this one..a lot..Ripe Persimmon & Barn Door..then added a corner die in soft grey..

This one was fun..I added gold leaf to it..Crushed Olive & Mowed Lawn with splatters of Ground Espresso, the the gold leaf..

You can see the gold better here...

This one..Dusty Concord, Stormy Sky & Tumbled Glass..

And the last one was Spun Sugar with a blending tool then stamped with white embossing powder and bits of it coloured with my markers..and splatters of gold paint..

So there you are..these kept me busy for awhile and I really enjoyed making the panels  up when everything was dry..all this smooshing was done on Canson water paper..

Thanks so much for stopping by..

Fabulous selection Chrissy oxides are brilliant aren't they and make fabulous smooshed backgrounds --great news about Holly too!!!The brushoes you commented on are not too expensive and as you only use the tiniest bit like adding saltsparingly they last absolutly ages I have had mine about two years and despite Holly going beserk adding hers still got nearly full pots left and you can paint with them too

Chrissy, these are all beautiful with the oxides.

Chrissy, I'm so glad your kitty is feeling better! I went back and read the story, incredible...she is a strong one. Your cards are gorgeous! Oxides are amazing. Next you need to try smooshing them on glossy paper and using the distress glaze. It makes amazing backgrounds. Big hugs!
