Rangers – Tim holtz Distress Oxides

It was initially a comment from my sister that caused me to look at these inks. I have never really been too interested in inks apart from distressing edges of cards and books and the occasional stamping of sentiments etc.

My sisters comment was “Have you seen those new Distress oxides? They look amazing.’ Of course I had to check them out and so looked at the initial You Tube posts by Tim Holtz at CHA. I then think I watched every You Tube post that was posted as I waited patiently to receive the inks.

These are my initial results. I love creating with them and after only having them a week I am itching to get a day in the craft room to really ‘play’.

Used the Tim holtz die Mixed Media 2 by cutting and placing over the top of the card. The bling is Nuvo Dots and the With Love ie is from a Tattered Lace Magazine Free gift.
