Distress Oxide Inks on Dark Backgrounds


Hi Crafters,
I was experimenting a little bit today with some Distress Oxide inks and how they look on dark backgrounds. I used a dark grey cardstock to experiment on since I am currently out of black cardstock (oh no!). I layered the Foliage Stencil by Gina K Designs( GNK ) and blended Spiced Marmalade ( SSS | MFT ), Abandoned Coral( SSS ), Picked Raspberry ( SSS ) and Wilted Violet Oxide Inks( SSS | MFT ) on top. The colours turned out really great an subtle enough for a sympathy card without being too bright.

I used the Strength for Today Stamp( SSZ ) and Walk Beside Us Stamp( SSZ ) stamps to finish off the card with a more personalized touch. I love the way they dry like raindrops on the card.

To embellish the card further, I used Grey Mist Nuvo Drops ( SSS | MFT ) to embellish the swirls and they dried clear.
