layered distress oxide resist

I love a good embossed resist stamping technique, especially a layered Distress Oxide one! 

In case you haven't used Distress Oxide inks yet (and I highly recommend you do), here's a quick bit about them...

  • they are a hybrid of pigment & dye inks
  • they are water-reactive, creating a "oxidized" effect when you add water
  • they blend beautifully
  • they are fun to watercolor with
  • and because they are part pigment, you can layer colors without getting "mud"

And I love this layered resist technique! You create a background with inks & water. Stamp & emboss an image in clear. Then finish by adding another color! Here's a quick video of the process:

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
