Distress Oxides- Twisted Citron, Broken China

I stamped the leaves in Versamark and used white embossing powder. This is my second card using the DOX's. They are fun to use!

I finally purchased some Distress Oxide inks. I know, I'm late to the party. This is my first attempt at using them. I used the colors Picked Raspberry and Fossilized Amber. I had an old flower stamp that I inked up in the Picked Raspberry and stamped on top of the colors and then used an embossing folder.

I'm back again as a Guest Designer for WAW. I hope you'll play along with us. Word Art Wednesday has free scriptures that you can get from their blog every fortnight. You don't have to use the scripture. You can play Anything Goes. I hope to see your creation over the next few weeks. 

One of my first and favorite scriptures I learned is God's phone number.  Jeremiah 33:3 - Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
