Somewhere along the way as life got busier and forced a change in my crafting, I finally decided to embrace what I enjoy. I love simple images, colored with Copics - and I LOVE using dies. Those things don't take new tools or products (which leaves room in the budget for new dies so maybe I need to work on that addiction next.)
But lately I've been paying close attention to Distress Oxide Inks and videos from all my favorite crafters. I finally decided they just might be magic and ordered a few. Guess what? They are magic. They are beautiful just blended into each other. It's seamless with a beautiful finish. They do fun things with water. You can also get complex by building colors and using water to create the "oxide" look.
After that build up - what I am showing you today really doesn't demonstrate the magic. I really liked parts of one of the backgrounds I created - so I decided to cut some snowflakes. You can see how seamless the colors blend - and there's a hint of water action. Mostly I just LOVE the colors!
