NEW 2020 Oxide Ink Blending Combos! Crackling Campfire!

Last week Tim Holtz announced another brand new color for the Distress family! Crackling Campfire is a gorgeous red orange shade that fits perfectly into the Distress family of colors. It’s the color we never knew we needed until we saw it! Today I have four new #KristinasOxideCombos for you all! Enjoy!

NOTE: A big thank you to Simon Says Stamp for overnighting me a Crackling Campfire package of goodies! I had the new color in hand the day after Tim announced it! Thanks, Simon!

(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).

Some things to note before I get into the combos… I used a slick surface to protect my work surface while blending. The slick surface also allows for easy blending from the edge of the cardstock. I used Mini Round Blending Tools from Ranger (with a blending foam for each color). The cardstock I’m using for all these blending videos is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.

Also, don’t forget your reinkers!

Now the combos!

I can’t wait to see what additional colors Tim has planned for us! I’ll be sure to add more Oxide Combos when those are announced, too! :)

    I love that you take all the guess work out of color combos for us. Did I miss the one for Speckled Egg?

    Kristina, do you think the Tonic non-stick mat you use works better for ink blending than a glass mat? I use the Tim Holtz glass mat and still struggle with ink blending as far getting a smooth transition from the glass to the paper.
