Layering Distress Oxide and Distress Inks

It's no secret that I'm a Distress Ink addict.  One of my favorite things to do is to watercolor with them, and as of late I'm hooked on layering them to create depth.  The steps I used to create this card are very similar to the steps I used to create the Merry & Bright Card and the Bright Snowflakes Card.  


I began by layering Distress Oxides to create a background.  Once I had a background I was happy with I stamped the poinsettias using Versamark ink, then shook on gold embossing powder.  After heat setting the embossing powder, I pulled the matching Distress inks and squished them onto my glass mat.  Using the ink as watercolor I layered on the matching ink color to the area I was painting.  


The watercolor panel was then added to a gold mat and adhered to a kraft card.  Then finished with the word peace die cut from the same gold paper as the mat.
