Distress Oxides are Here



With everything going on around here in January, I didn't watch a single CHA video showing the new products. So I'd never heard of Distress Oxide inks until I saw them pop up on my Instagram feed as fellow crafters began getting them in.  So I went to check them out watching videos from Jennifer McGuire and Tim Holtz.  These inks can do almost everything you would want in an ink - all from a single pad so I just had to have them.

I say almost because the one thing they are not is permanent.  As I haven't been doing quite as much mixed media I'm not needing permanent quite so much so that doesn't matter to me right now.  What these inks do is:

High quality stamping
Add color to paper as a solid
"oxide" with a whitish look when water is added
Emboss as the ink does not dry immediately
and of course, Distress edges.

As a bonus, I only had a couple of these colors in regular Distress Inks so I got lots of new colors buying the set.  After getting them, I did a color palette to be able to easily choose the right color for a projects and see how each color works with its different features.

I had already been thinking that I needed to use my stamps and inks more this year as they are my single biggest investment in my craft room.  Now I really want to use them more!
