The background on this card shows the results of my first attempt at playing with Tim's new Distress Oxide inks . . .
These new inks are game changers indeed! Here is a look at Jennifer McGuire's excellent 34 minute video on the many amazing features of this new and very unique ink. They are a blend of both dye and pigment inks and you can get the best of both features in each Oxide ink pad. As long as each layer is heat dried before the next is applied, you can use any colors you like, regardless of their position on the color wheel: if the previous layer is dry, you won't wind up with a muddy-colored mess. That's because the pigment portion of the ink formula is opaque, and it will therefore stay on top of the previous layer and retain its color.
This changes everything and I cannot wait to continue experimenting with them! Translation: you're going to see a lot of projects with this new product . . .
