Oxide Ink Bird on a Branch

YES! I am enjoying Tim Holtz' new Distress Oxide inks...
they are a BLAST to play with! 

Take a look at the beautiful effect that you can achieve using them! 

I began with kraft cardstock and stenciled a harlequin pattern on it (Prima Elementals Harlequin Stencil and Royal Synthetic Artist Sponges). I sprayed it with water (Mini Mister)..adding water activates the oxidization, giving a chalky, muted look. The ink is not chalky though, and stays where you put it. No rub-off. 

I then added more of the oxide inks by smearing the ink on a work surface, adding water spritz, then rubbing the panel in the ink and dabbing off with paper towel.

After letting the harlequin panel dry, I layered the stencil on once again and added a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Crayon to highlight the print and make it pop.

The bird accent is a Prima's Princess Wooden Embellishment. It is also colored with the Tim Holtz Oxide inks. It is glued to the harlequin panel using Tombow MonoMulti Liquid Glue.

The harlequin panel was layered onto Coredinations Color Core Tim Holtz Distress 12 x 12" cardstock, and popped up with Thermoweb 3D Foam Strips. 

A border of May Art's Burlap String ties it all together.
