Happy, happy, Wednesday, crafty friends! Do you like to play around with ink? I certainly do and so I was really excited when I discovered today’s project by Creative Team member Kim Singdahlsen. She has been experimenting with Distress Oxide Inks — these very cool inks from Ranger/Tim Holtz are so much fun to use. They create an ‘oxidized’ look that is smooth, and the ink is reactive with water, which means the creative possibilities are virtually endless! Check out Kim’s gorgeous project:
Notes from Kim about her project…
I finally started playing with Distress Oxide Inks and I did a number of smoothly blended backgrounds with a bit of water. Then I decided I wanted to get a bit messier. And I figured feathers would be a good way to practice! I did a larger background and then cut the feathers out of the area that I liked using TE’s Fine Feathers dies (It’s the closest I could get to letting go of control!) I like the results. These inks really have potential for me personally. They can be smooth; they can be messy; yet they can still be controlled because the colors build on each other.
Thank you so much, Kim, for sharing your awesome oxidized card with us today! You can catch more of Kim’s work on her blog, Joyful Creations with Kim. Come on back tomorrow for more birthday fun!
