I finally got my hands on some of the Distress Oxide Inks. I started out with only four colors, but made sure they contained the primary colors so I could create as many looks as possible. I had a hard time with them at first and wondered if I was going to be the only person in the crafting world who didn't love these inks. After watching a few videos by Tim Holtz and playing around a bit I finally got exactly the kind of background I was imagining. They really are magical!
I used my Oxide background, along with a wonderful sentiment stamp by Gina Marie Designs (release date Sept 15th) to create this really fun and colorful card.
