Studio Katia • Brush Stroke Background With Distress Oxides

Hi friends,

Quickly popping in today to share a card I made for Studio Katia using Distress Oxides. I only got them recently and now enjoying playing with them :)

These new inks are not very new already. Many people got them back in January attending CHA and there are already many card and tutorials shared using these new amazing inks. I knew from the moment Tim showed them that I’d be getting them. I have a little bit unhealthy relationship with everything Tim designs. Especially with his Ranger lines. But I didn’t get them the first moment they became available on purpose. I just want my decision to ripen. So I know I’m not only following my heart since these are Tim’s product, but I really need them. I hate buying something and not using then. And I already have a lot of inks which I love.

In April I visited Simon Says Stamp Create event and had chance to try them and see Tim demoing them. After that I finally ordered them and they’re awesome. They blend beautifully and stamp beautifully (something you cannot really do with Distress inks). Some people dislike a sort of dull or chalky finish these inks create. But I personally do really love such effect.

For my card I used new Brush Stroke Stripes Stamp Set. I stamped the background onto a Solar White panel using Distress Oxide inks (colors are linked below). And then sprayed it with water using Distress Sprayer. I blotted water with a paper towel and let my panel to dry before stamping a sentiment in black using happy word from Happy Stamp Set.

The panel then was adhered onto a white card base.

I white embossed the rest of the sentiment onto stripes of black cardstock and foam mounted them onto the panel.

Lastly I added several frosted hearts. I like their matte finish. I think they really match oxides especially.
