It was bound to happen, people. I finally got my hands on some of Tim Holtz’s magical Distress Oxide inks. I’d heard many great tales of their superior blendability, and I was eager to throw water on them as well, you know, so I could roll with the all those crafty YouTube experts.
Now lucky for me, Tim is my friend and he sent me these to play with. You should have heard me squeal when the package arrived. (It was loud and on a very high frequency causing many dogs in my neighborhood to tilt their collective heads sideways). I grabbed a piece of the Bristol Smooth Cardstock (also great for blending!) and using my Mini Blending Tools, I started laying down some ink.
But experience aside, it’s a pretty cute card.
I love the reaction to water that these inks have. This ink has a chalkier feel and look than the regular Distress Inks. Again, I’m really looking forward to playing with them more and seeing what shakes out!
Plus, it gave me a chance to make another card with my Mama Elephant Party Animals set. Those little bunnies are ridiculously cute and because I don’t have a lot of stamp and matching die sets, I’m working on making more things with the ones I have.
Another thing I’m continuing is the labeling and organizing of all of my inks. Of course, I learned everything I know from Jennifer McGuire on this topic and you can learn about how she does this by clicking here.
Anyhoo, just wanted to share a little card from my weekend creative exploits. For the full supply lists, see the bottom of this post!
