A Fall Sunset
by Melissa Rusk

Today I wanted to share a fun technique to make a sunset to accompany some of the new dies from the Fall release. Let's get crafting!


To create this fun background I used the Distress Oxide inks on photo paper. I layered the colors Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey by placing some in on a non-stick mat and sprayed it with water. Then I dragged the photo paper through it and then dried it with a heat tool. I repeated this step until the paper was covered to my liking, the colors will be dull at this point. To make them bright I took a baby wipe and wiped it over the photo paper to create the bright and shiny background.


It's so much fun! To finish off the card I cut the House Trio and Curved Hilltop dies to create a scene. I glued it all to a pretty Concord colored note card to finish off. It would make a cute Halloween card or a Fall card.

I hope you try out this fun technique!






Using photo paper has really made those colours vibrant Melissa what a fab tip thanks for sharing .

Wow !! Distress Oxides on photo paper : I never thought I'd look soooo amazing!!
