distress oxide resist

What started as just enjoying the messy, inky process of Distress Oxide ink pads, turned into a technique and some cards I really love! My fingers were blue for the next 24 hours but it was totally worth it!
I started by smooshing Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick & Wild Honey onto my craft mat, misting and pulling my paper through the ink.

I repeated as necessary until I loved it, then I stamped the popsicle from the Concord & 9th Sweet & Cool set in Versamark and embossed with clear powder. "Sweet" was stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear as well, while the popsicle stick was stamped with Distress Oxide Antique Linen and embossed in clear.

For the next layer, I smooshed Distress Oxide Salty Ocean and Peacock feathers, misted and placed my panel in the inky puddles until I was happy with the color and coverage. 
I finished by stamping "have a" & "birthday" in VersaFine Onyx and adding black and white splatters.

And then I repeated the process, adding Distress Oxide Twisted Citron. Look how different the colors are?

Friday Hugs!
