5 Favourite Distress Oxide Blends + Create a Smile Stamps New Release Video Blog Hop

07:00


Hi Crafters!
Today is a big day! Create a Smile Stamps has made a comeback after doing some restructuring and moving and they are celebrating the new release as well Christine's (the owner) birthday! We are doing a video hop to celebrate the new release - so you literally are going to hop from video to video and get all sorts of inspiration!



For these cards I experimented with my favourite blends of Distress Oxide inks. I gear towards colourful, happy and vibrant colours as you can see. I used the In Bloom stamp set to stamp the flowers and the Happy Days stamp for the sentiment and I embossed in white embossing powder before laying down the colour.


Top Card: Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick 
Bottom Card: Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet

Distress Oxide inks come in the same colours as regular oxides but they are quite different. In all honesty, since they have come out, I haven't used my regular distress inks. These are so easy to blend because they contain some pigment ink. That means it doesn't soak straight away into the paper and you have some time to buff out any harsh lines.


Colours: Broken China, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey

I prefer blending tools over anything else to lay down colour, however you can use many things to apply colour. I compared various tools in this video if you would like to check it out.



Adding water to your blend is where the real magic begins. It creates a milky appearance as the ink repels the water. Regular distress inks will also repel water but not quite in the same way. Be sure to watch how much water and layers you use - that will determine the type of paper you use.
