Distress vs. Distress Oxide Ink Blending

Happy Wednesday, all! I’ve received multiple questions recently about the differences between Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink when it comes to ink blending. So today I thought I would try ink blending with the same colors in each ink formula.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

The main difference between the two inks (for me, at least) is the texture of the ink when you’re blending. Distress Oxide Inks are creamy and sort of sit on the surface of the cardstock. This allows for easy blending when you add a second color of ink. The original Distress Inks soak into the paper and don’t move much.

I turned my two ink blending experiments into cards using the Magnolia stamp set from Waffle Flower for some white heat embossing. I also added a greeting using the stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I hope you enjoyed the comparison video! Thanks for stopping by!
