Just Distress Oxide It! Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop where we are featuring Distress Oxide Inks. I am sure you will find a lot of great artwork that incorporates these fun products. 

If you are coming from Judy's Blog, you are on the right track. You can continue to make your way around the Blog Hop by clicking on the links provided. A list, of participants, is provided at the bottom of this post. 

Truth be told, I haven't created much with Oxide Inks and need to take time to do so. I have realized to just go with it as they end up blending nicely together with little effort on my part. 

To create this card:
  • I started with the pink ink and created the long streak as shown.
  • When I added the next color (yellow), I went back over with the previous color to overlap them a bit more. 
  • I continued doing the same with the green and blue inks. 
  • I then spritzed the entire sheet with a little bit of water. I like the effects it provides, removing the need for the background to look perfect. I have not figured out how to make the water spots show up more so I will have to look into that.
  • After the cardstock dried, I ran the butterfly Thin Cut through my diecut machine.
  • I bent up the wings a bit and added 3-D Thin Foam Tape on its body, so it provided additional dimension. 
  • The sentiment was stamped with the Black Archival Ink and a few Silver Glitter Gems were added for the finishing touch. 
Are you wondering about the BIG Butterfly Thin Cut? It is available for a limited time only, while supplies last, as part of the "You are Enough" Special that was released this month, in honor of National Scrapbooking Month. You can find the details by following the links. 

These are the Distress Oxide Ink colors I used: 
I love how well they blended together. 

I truly appreciate you stopping by and hope you enjoy what everyone has created. Consider leaving a comment and then head on over to Cat's Blog to see what she has to share with you. 

Enjoy the second half of May! Happy hoppin'!
