Textured Backgrounds Featuring Oxide Inks + Altenew

Hello everyone! Welcome back for a new tutorial, this time featuring some Oxide Ink stenciling, as well as adding texture with dry embossing. This card is also going to showcase some Altenew products I’ve been wanting to use again. The floral design is the pretty, Layered Dahlia stencils; I added sentiments with the Thinking of You script die and the Crafty Friends stamp set.

Originally I planned on having this be a one layer card… but as you can see I deviated from that idea quite a bit! :)

Another feature of this card is one of my favorite techniques using sequins and Tonic Studios’ Nuvo Drops. I love adding Nuvo Drops into the sequins to give them a dimensional effect. It turns out so pretty! For this card I used Sparkling Clear sequins and Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops.

I hope you’ll check out the video at the top of this post to see how the card came together!

Thanks for visiting me today; I’ll be back soon with more inspiration for you!
