You are Pretty Amazing

I recently saw a Tim Holtz video at the CHA ..found HERE, and got really curious about the new Distress Oxide Inks.  Due to their popularity, it's hard to find them in stock, but I managed to get my hands on some and made a card!...
 I used some pistachio, broken china and wilted violet, smeared on my Tim Holtz craft sheet, and then smeared a wetted piece of watercolor paper onto the inks.  I paper toweled off some excess... and wound up liking the muted look that happened when I did that...this is so much fun with a different look EVERY time:):)!!  I thought it "needed" something more, so I added added a partially stamped Simon Grid stamp, along with a Simon sentiment die and it's coordinating sentiment stamp.  I glossy accented the "You".  Here's a close up of them all...
Definitely will be seeing more of this fun ink:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Great looking card! Love it!

  2. Glossy accent! What a great idea - I've always used ultra thick embossing powder which can be tricky with finer details.

  3. Fantastic, love the look of the background, Cathy x

  4. I'm waiting to get my hands on some Distress Oxide. So many people have said they have a softer look than regular Distress inks when blended. Thanks for sharing.


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
