FAUX OXIDE using GESSO
This technique results in an 'oxide' finish without using Distress Oxide ink.

1. Trim some white cardstock to approx 4" x 4" (10cm x 10cm)

2. Stamp a background image (Darkroom Door Texture Stamp "Torn Text" used here)

3. Tear both sides to create jagged border.

4. Journal (hand-draw) with black fine-liner pen some circles/shapes (get creative, use various sizes and shapes) and add some leaves.

5. Apply a light covering of GESSO using a small brush (rinse brush immediately in clean water) Gesso offers a semi-opaque cover to soften any background image. The more layers of GESSO the more opaque it becomes.

6. Add colour using drops of Distress re-inker ink (a simple palette made by adding a drop of your favourite Distress Ink re-inker to an acrylic block works well.)

7. Pick up a small amount of distress ink on the very tip of your brush and colour in the GESSO'd shapes. Note how the GESSO shows through giving a Distress Oxide finish.

8. Once dry, add some smaller circles using fine-liner pen and colour using white gel pen for effect.

9. Attach to a card base.
(Card base shown here is 8" x 4" folded to 4" x 4")

Enjoy a relaxed creative endeavour.

  Use the following measurements to create a barn-gate card. Excellent for those difficult to create 'masculine' cards.
