Distress Oxides

The beautiful thing about Distress Oxides is that they give a “chalky” look without any chalk at all! They are a unique pigment/dye hybrid ink that gives an opaque coverage to your light or dark cardstock. These inks tend to look brighter and blend easier.

Creating the Backgrounds

Distress Oxide Ink Backgrounds

I used a combination of techniques to create today’s backgrounds. From standard ink blending and “smooshing” to adding texture with embossing folders and powders. This technique was really a fun way to “(di)stress”! Click on the video below to see how I created and used each background to create today’s cards!
