More Distress Oxide Goodness

Hello friends!
I have been exploring and experimenting with the new Distress Oxide inks.
Today's post may help you see if this is the kind of ink for you.

You can see my two previous posts about the Distress Oxide.

1. each color blends well with others
(see sentiment)
Do small things with great love

2. doesn't leave smudges when applied
you are extra special!

My 3rd finding is that you can stamp Distress Oxide first and clear-emboss the image.

I am trying it out with this lovely Flora Background Stamp.

You can find alternatives: Elinor Background,  and Cora Background and Flower Medallion

What you will be getting are textured glossy embossed image just like how you would get from COLORED embossing powder!

I didn't even apply Versamark ink before adding clear embossing powder. It works just like Versafine with clear embossing powder.

The sentiment is from Handlettered Encouragement. I am happy with this card's result. I know there are quite a few YT videos and tips on using Distress Oxide. This is purely my own discoveries and perhaps you already know all about the inks. But I thought it is still fun to share my takes along with the cards.
Thank you for stopping by!
Today is the last day for the special Altenew promotion.

You must have been reading my mind. I am going across town this week and will stop at one of the few remaining scrap stores in southeast Michigan. I am hoping they have Distress oxide in stock. Your hints are invaluable. Thenk you.
