Oxides meet the Colonel

Hi Everyone
I hope you are all enjoying the Easter Weekend. 
Like everyone out there at the moment I am loving Tim's new Oxide inks and used a background I had using them for the base of a card for my Dads birthday.

I have used the Fabulous 'Colonel' stamp from Bee Crafty (great for male cards), masked him off and stencilled the clock, by That's Crafty, behind him using vintage photo distress ink. Sentiment is from Rubber Dance stamps. His glass I covered in decoart liquid glass so it does look like a glass just that the photo doesn't show it up. 
To get a little texture into my background before applying the Oxides I first did some mark making onto the card using masking fluid and bubble wrap and a plastic cap for the rings. Once the masking liquid was dry I applied the oxides by picking up the colours from my craft mat using faded jeans,  fossilized amber and vintage photo. 

Once you removed the masking fluid you can see the pattern, which I then cut to the size I needed.
I've even had to download the labels from Rangers site, you'll find the labels Here

Roll on the rest of the colours.
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by
