Happy Mother’s Day!

Hello and welcome to my blog,

Today I’m sharing a mother’s day card I made with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks.  In my opinion, these inks are great because they serve several purposes.  They accomplish this by being a hybrid between dye and pigment ink.  First, they can be used like a distress ink because they react with water to give a weathered look.  Second, they have a finish that looks like chalk ink, so they can be used for stamping, and they are beautiful on white cardstock (which is they way I used them for the card below).  Third, they can be used to heat emboss!  So if you are looking for an all purpose ink, these inks are it!!  They come in 12 colors currently, but I’m sure more are on the way!!  You can watch this card being made on my Youtube channel by clicking the video beneath the image of the card.  Thanks and have a great day:)
