Distress Oxide splattered Background

Hello Friends! 

Distress Oxide inks are not new to the crafting world, but they are new to the line up of arsenal that Close to My Heart (CTMH) offers. Today I want to show you what simple blending and splattering effects have on a completed card. 

Gnome for Christmas is the name of the stamp set featured on these cards! Is this not the cutest set ever! 

Let's take a closer look at these cute cards and talk more about how that background came to be. 

Creating background with Distress Oxide inks is extremely easy to do. Because of their unique make up the ink sits on top of the paper. This delays the drying time of the ink, and allows the crafter time needed to blend out the ink. Unlike water-based inks that absorb into the paper quickly, they can leave little to no wiggle room for blending. Not saying it isn't possible, but it does take more effort. 

Once your distress oxide inks are blended on your paper, you can make really cool splatter effects by adding drops or mists of water while the ink is still wet. you can dab away the water with a paper towel or leave it to dry on its own. Because these inks are water-reactive you will see 'white' areas left after the water is dried or dabbed away.
