Studio Katia • Distress Oxide Bleaching

Distress Oxide Bleaching. With Studio Katia You're So Ranunculus stamp set. Card by @craftwalks

Hi friends!

Several posts ago I mentioned that had gotten Distress Oxides before and they become my new love right away. Today I want to share card using Distress Oxide bleaching technique. This technique can be used with any ink or paint that can be “removed” with water. And I definitely wanted to try it with Oxides. Studio Katia You’re So Ranunculus Stamp Set is a perfect set to try this technique with.

To start off I created a gradient background by inking a white panel with Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber Oxides. You may read and heard this a lot, but I still will say it – those are so easy to blend. I dare to say, that I’m pretty experienced in ink blending. But still can sometimes get those sharp edges. Oxides are much easier to work with. They blend like butter!

Next I put the panel aside to let ink dry. After it dried out I white emboss gorgeous Ranunculus onto the panel.

Then I started adding water with damp brush inside the embossed image outlines. I was letting the water to sit there for several seconds and then blotted it of with a paper towel. The water reacted with oxides and diluted then to some point. Giving this interesting kind of bleached look.

I also added some water droplets to the whole panel using Distress Sprayer and blotted them off as well. Then the panel got adhered onto a white card base. For the sentiment I die cut a hello using a die from You’re So Ranunculus Die Set. To finish off my card I added several frosted hearts.

I really like how bleaching technique works for Distress Oxides. Like the soft result I got after removing some inks with water.

Hope you like my card and give this technique a try. Have a wonderful day!
