Instructions

Hello friends! This is Richele, today I’m sharing some quick n’ easy Mixed Media cards using Distress Oxide Sprays and Distress Archival Inks. I’m in love with the new Distress Oxide Sprays and how versatile they are, you can use them for backgrounds, for coloring with a waterbrush like I’ve done on these cards, spraying through stencils and more.

Step 4: Spray Distress Oxide Spray on Non-Stick Craft Sheet, pick up ink with Waterbrush and paint design as desired. I love the intensity of the inks right out of the bottle for coloring.

Step 5: Stamp some small Media Marks in the background by picking up the excess ink from the Craft Sheet with the stamp and adding marks to the card. Next water down the ink that’s left, pick up with Waterbrush and flick on background. Dry with a Heat It Tool.
