Distressed Oxide Ink

Background Tutorial
Use the new Distressed Oxide Inks to make some fun backgrounds for a Christmas Nativity Scene. There are 14 colors top choose from in our new Ink collection. I used the blending technique for the background on the card. The ink colors are Antique Linen, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, and Chipped Sapphire. You will need the ink blending tool with the foam applicators for this technique.
Step 1. Apply the first coat of color with the blending tool using a circular motion on your white cardstock.
Step 2. Apply a second color next to the first color using the circular motion to blend the two colors together. You can see where the Picked Raspberry on the Mustard Seed made a shade of orange.
Step 3. Apply the third color using the circular motion blending the Chipped Sapphire with the Picked Raspberry to make a little shade of purple.
Step 4. Apply a spatter of glittery drops for the night sky with your clear shimmer brush.
Stamp your selection of images on your blended background with your Black Ink pad. 
Add a sentiment of your choice. Soften the edges of the Mustard Seed with the Antique Linen Ink using a circular motion to blend the two colors.
