Pages with Distress Oxides and Crayons



So last week Tim ( http://timholtz.com/tim-holtz-products/) sent me a bunch of Distress Oxide pads. I was curious and wondered how they were going to stack up against all the old pads I had loved for like more than 20 years.

Well I was very pleasantly surprised and pleased. The colors are great and the blendabilty was excellent! This is a fusion ink which has properties of dye and pigment. I have always loved that the color line of all Distress products has a good array of neutrals which many stamp pad lines do not have.



















When I put the first color down I thought they felt a little dry but I was working on Mixed Media Strathmore paper so any pads would feel dry. I put a couple more colors down and pulled out the awesome Distress Sprayer. I really like this Sprayer!!!!! It's very easy to use and that little on/off button makes it great for travel.
















Once I started spraying I could see what the fuss is all about. The colors blended really well and stayed very bright.




Then I pulled out the blenders......
and used one of my favorite stencils from A Colorful Life Designs. ( put MaryJo10 on your order for a discount) WOW, I loved that look!
Dripping was fun too since the color stayed well one on top of the other.



I blotted a bit and the got out the Distress Crayons. I just colored in a bit and rubbed them in.....see more soon I am still playing.
