I had an opportunity to play with my new Distress Oxide Inks (DOX) last week.
Here are two samples of smooshing with them.
I used the same technique on both of these samples.
The one on the left was smooshed on cardstock.
The one on the right was smooshed on Tim Holtz Specialty Paper.
For each sample, I applied the ink to my craft sheet one color at a time
and smooshed the paper in the ink WITHOUT spritzing with water.
Then I spritzed the inked piece with water as I dried it.
It moved a lot more on the specialty paper.
I thought the colors were more vibrant than when I spritzed the inks with water before smooshing.
It looks more like smooshing with Distress Ink with the
advantage of the colors layering.
Here's a card I made from the sample on the left.
That bit of pink made me think of a flower.
I framed it with a NBUS Stitched Hexagon Layers.
There's a piece of die cut foam underneath.
I don't know if you can see the background or not.
It was a piece that had been dry embossed with a stencil.
It adds a very subtle embossing.
It's a good thing it's subtle, because the embossing is crooked.
The more I tried to straighten it, the worse it got!
This is the card I made with some of the piece done on Specialty Paper.
It's a shameful CASE of Jennifer McGuire's card.
I love this NBUS Poppystamp die!
