5 Ways to Use Distress Oxide Inks

08:38


Hi Crafters!
Today is Day 2 of the Distress Oxide Event that Josefine and I are putting on. We both fell in love with Distress Inks this year at Creativation in Phoenix when we were one of the first people to try them in Tim Holtz's workshop.  I have a video that wraps up five techniques that you can do with Oxides and Josefine will carry on for the next two days with more videos on how to use them. I love how everyone can find something that is their taste since we both have relatively different styles - Josefine loves getting inky with mixed media techniques and I prefer to stay on the clean and simple side. I hope you enjoy it!



Also super exciting! My interview on the So Suzy Podcast is now live! If you haven't heard of it before, it is a cardmaking podcast! You can listen here!





I am also giving away TWO sets of Distress Oxide Inks - one set today and one set went live yesterday, you can check out Day 1's video here or check out my list of giveaways on the right sidebar.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Great tutorial! I think I like worn lipstick the best (love the name too), but really is there a single color I don't like? No

    ReplyDelete
  172. I'm least fond of Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo, but that is not to say I don't like them. I just happen to enjoy brighter, bolder colors.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Beautiful cards!Thank you for the video!I don't have any Distress Oxides so far but from what I have seen on videos I think my favorite color is Broken China...but I do like the rest as well! :)

    ReplyDelete
  174. I'm now officially a convert as I wasn't sure I wanted the new Distress Oxides inks but no more! They sure do look like they blend more easily and I love how water reacts with them. Tim Holtz's creative genius continues to amaze me. I don't know what color I would pick as my favorite as I don't have any yet, but from what I have seen on tutorials and online - I'll go for Cracked Pistachio with Worn Lipstick as a close runner-up.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Thanks for all the great ideas! These inks are so awesome & your cards are wonderful. My favorite color would be Worn Lipstick but then I do like Broken China... , No, it would be Worn Lipstick> I love that one!
