Card Videos

Easy Distress Oxide Watercolor Background

Hello, all! So sorry for the delay in today’s video! I’d hoped to get this up yesterday, but time got away from me. :) Anyhow, in today’s card video, I played with Distress Oxide inks again–this time with water!

(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).

I love doing ink smooshing techniques because of the unpredictable nature of it! You don’t always know what you’ll get. I used another Distress Oxide color combination from last Friday’s videoTattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, and Seedless Preserves.

After creating the background, I silver heat embossed the large image from WPlus9’s Butterfly Mandala stamp set. I also embossed the “Hello” from the stamp set on vellum and then added color with an RV19 Copic marker. To finish off the greeting area, I smooshed the Seedless Preserves ink pad onto white cardstock (to make my own DIY colored cardstock) and then added the small “I miss you” sentiment from the stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed the video! I’ll see you soon for the second installment in my Distress Oxide Ink Blending miniseries. Thanks for stopping by!
