Wendy and I have been trying out the new Distress Oxide stamp pads by Tim Holtz. They are addictive! You can use the same colours with different card stock to achieve a very different look. These would make excellent backgrounds for men's cards too.
To see a demo watch the attached video from Wendy.
Here are some samples:
Below Wendy's is using Bazzill card stock. The texture of the Bazzill adds another dimension. Think we got carried away with playing and forgot to take progressive photos. Oops!
My samples below, such a different effect than Wendy's, plus I added another colour.
Another piece on Bazzill.
We also tried gloss card, which came up beautifully but the pigment in the oxide inks just sits on the card unlike the dye component that absorbs into the card. I tried using a sealer to keep ink from rubbing off but it just lifted the pigment off (see last photo).
Anyway I hope you enjoy using the Distress Oxides as much as we did. It would be great to see some of your projects using these inks so if you feel like sharing them with me email email@example.com. These won't be posted on the website unless we have your permission.
Here are a couple of cards I made:
Thanks and enjoy!
