Combining Distress Inks with Distress Oxide

Hi friends!
Today I wanted share how I used both Distress Inks and Distress Oxide inks together!  It was a layering day as my inks were layered, my stencils, and my die cuts - HAHA!
I started out by using a piece of Ready Cut Strathmore watercolor paper, and used the direct to paper technique with my Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink cube, and covered the entire piece of watercolor paper.  Then, I took out my Fill In Floral Stencils from Concord and 9th, and used the Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink and applied the first layer of flowers.  Then, to add detail to the flowers, I used the second stencil with Twisted Citron Distress Ink.  Very bright, very summer appropriate!
I did the same thing with the blue card which was Salty Ocean Distress Ink, and Oxide ink with the Twisted Citron Distress Ink.  The only stamping I did was the stamping of my sub sentiment from the Crafty Friends stamp set from Altenew.  I also wanted to add a little sparkle and shine, so I die cut both the Scripty Hugs and Scripty Thanks dies from Lawn Fawn from Silver Sparkle card stock from MFT and layered it onto of a white die cut.
Love how they both turned out!  I never get tired of playing with these inks, and you will see more from me in the next coming weeks for sure!!  Have a great rest of the weekend!!
