New Color - Distress Oxide Crackling Campfire

Can we take a minute and talk about this beautiful color?  I only have it in the Distress Ink pad, but the color is amazing. It's the perfect red-orange!  Not quite orange, not really red.  On this card, I combined it with Forest Moss and Gathered Twiggs to build the background.  The end result was such a perfect fall color scheme or manly.  We all struggle with masculine cards, and I've been working to build more into my card making repertoire.  These colors seemed perfect for that.

I love a good happy accident.  I stamped the lantern in VersaMark ink, shook on some black embossing powder, and tapped it off.  I thought the background was dry and I forgot to use my embossing powder tool.   I ended up with various dots of embossing powder all over my background.  I opted to just leave it, the end result was added some cool spots of texture.


I went in with a bit more of the Forest Moss to color the lantern, added some Wild Honey to the glob for an effect of fire, and added a few red highlights to parts of the lantern with the Crackling Campfire.  To finish the image I used a glaze pen on the glob and red highlights to give the look of glass and enameled parts.  The card was completed with a black mat and adhered to a kraft card base.
