  • About my project supply lists:
    I only use and share products that I genuinely love. The product supply lists that accompany my projects are simply intended to provide a visual overview of what I've used in case you have the same items at home or would like to add them to your own shopping list. I link to several stores in the UK and US and as of July 1, 2017 I am an affiliate member of, Amazon UK, Ellen Hutson (store retiring), and (as of April 2022) The Greetery - this means that when you click on an affiliate link and go on to make a purchase I will receive a small percentage at no cost to you. Money raised through affiliate links will go straight towards my crafting fund. Finally, please note that any products marked "(r)" are retired and may no longer be available for sale online.

I'm envious! I don't own oxides nor do I know anyone locally who has the effect you created using them. Stunning card. Shabneez x


Beautiful background Nat, love the effect you've got with the Oxides and the dye ink stamping of the butterfly!

Such a beautiful card. I've treated myself to the Oxides but haven't used them yet- I love the effect you've created and might get them out today. Cathy x


This is lovely Nat, the way the background moves through the shades of colour is gorgeous. I may need to investigate those inks after all


Looove that card, very subtle indeed! I thought you had masked the butterfly on the background before "oxidizing" the rest so thanks for explaining your stamping technique (and probably saving me from some disappointment).


What an amazing background and the colours are just fabulous. X
