Oxide Backgrounds

I've been playing with Distress Oxides and modelling paste to make a few backgrounds (full details on the STAMPlorations blog).  Sometimes a CAS background doesn't do it for me, and I have to go all-out colourful :)

I'm entering this into Simon Says Monday Challenge, Grunge It Up

And I'm entering this next one into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Make Your Own Background.


  1. Fabulous cards, Shirley - love the oxide backgrounds, Jo x

  2. love these backgrounds! I just doubled my oxide collection, I can't wait to play with more colors!


  3. Love your Grunge layered background with your buttercup on your 1st card and your more Spring colored background for your 2nd card with your white stamped and just a bit of shading cut out fun mug. TFS both your fun cards, Shirley. Hugs

  4. I love your grunge backgrounds and the pretty colors used on both cards. Thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

  5. All out colourful works beautifully, Shirley ... well, anything does in your creative hands! These are both delicious ... artsy and layered ... and with great texture! Hugs, Anita :)
