NEW Ink Blends! Distress Oxides vs. Concord & 9th Inks

Hi all! Not long ago I received a video request about ink blending with Oxides versus traditional dye inks. I’ve done a Distress and Distress Oxide ink comparison, but not with a different brand of ink. So here are four new #KristinasInkCombos for you, in both Tim Holtz Distress Oxide colors and Concord & 9th colors. Enjoy!


(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 for underneath the blending. I used a Replacement Non-Stick Mat from Tim Holtz. For the Oxides, I used Mini Round Blending Tools from Ranger (with a domed blending foam for each color). For the C9 inks, I used blending brushes. The cardstock I’m using for all these blending videos is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.
