More play with Distress Oxides


Hi everyone.  More playing with my new Distress Oxides inks.  They react so differently than any product I've used so far.

I love the colours of the background and it is a good example of how you can layer MANY different colours of ink and they all show.  I pressed two colours onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and smooshed onto a piece of watercolour paper. Dried with my heat tool, and repeated, adding different colours each time.  I used six different colours and the amazing thing is that you can see all of them.  Very cool!

I added a simple die-cut (layered with black foam for added dimension) and sentiment to finish the card.  I'm learning lots just playing with these fun inks. :)







Stamps:  A Little Sentimental (Clearly Besotted)
Paper:  Black (Stampin' Up!); Watercolour (Arches 140 lb. cold press)
Ink:  Distress Oxides:  Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio (Tim Holtz); Black (Memento)
Accessories & Tools:  Water mister, heat tool, Meadow Leaf die (Poppy Stamps)

Loll, this IS a fabulous result, in particular with the black die cut emphasising the beautiful oxide colours. I have 6 pads and need to get the rest. They are the best so far compared to other I have used too.. ♥[aNNie]

Ooh, I do LOVE the drama of a black card with a glorious pop of colour Loll! Fabulous background! When I look at this, it conjures up a picture of a stormy sky in a corn field (I know it's not corn, but that is the picture that comes to mind). Gorgeous! Have a great day! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx

Marcia HIll said...

WOW...love all the color in this one Loll and how you used the black background to make it all pop! And after yesterdays post, I couldn't stand it and had to go online and order some of the Oxide inks rather than wait for them to show up in my local stores...now I can't wait for my order to arrive! Thanks for all the enabling Loll!! :0)

Simplicity at its most beautiful. Glad you got the oxides, and what another fab tool in your arsenal of artistic tricks. This is just lovely (and don't the oxides blend so smoothly too!) TFS & Hugs.

Those colors are outstanding! You always choose such gorgeous combinations and achieve some of the most spectacular results I have seen. Love the simple die cut against this beautiful smooshed background.

Wow, i am so loving your background with the oxide inks Loll! So beautiful is this card. That background just shines though so beautifully with the black framing it and I love your leaves in black too. Just beautiful! Hugs, Brenda
