Well this post is a bit bittersweet for me as it was meant to be accompanied with a YouTube video. The only problem is that during the edit I managed to delete some of the video which meant it no longer made sense. So now no video!
I loved playing with these inks for the first time and came up with some interesting backgrounds. This first one is the usual wrinkle free distress background but using distress oxide.
I then used a Lynne Perrella stamps and water coloured it using the same inks and made this card.
Next up is a splash background…. I saw this on a Jennifer Maguire YouTube video. This provided a fun confetti background … perfect for this Zinski stamped bird and sentiment. Once stamped the bird was coloured using the oxide ink too.
This next one was using the oxide inks and blending tools… I love this so much as so creamy and smooth a finish. I then also stamped with the oxide ink and again when adding a small spritz of water they also oxidised.
Whilst playing with these inks also did some comparisons with distress inks and stains…
From that I ended up with a really interesting panel which I finished with the bird from the Hot Picks Paperartsy stamps.
And finally I also did a distress ink version of the wrinkle free distress background.
This I finished off with these Clarity stamp garden stamps… love it!
So yes I love what I made just frustrated that the video didn’t work… of course I couldn’t let it be… and so late on Saturday I filmed another video…
And from that made a card and a background for another project I can’t share yet!
