I’ve recently purchased some Distress Oxide inks – and I am in love with them! I love the creaminess of them and they are soooo easy to blend! I only have 4 colours at the moment, but I will definitely be adding a few more to my stash soon…

Today’s technique has been borrowed by the extremely talented Jennifer McGuire and in particular this post here. I wanted to try this same technique with some Penny Black supplies and it worked so beautifully.

First up I blended some Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks onto some watercolour card stock. Did I mention that these babies blend like butter (to borrow a catch phrase from Laura Bassen)? I took the Penny Black Hypnotic stencil and sprayed it with a fine mist of water. I placed this face down onto the blended panel and let it sit for 5 mins or so while it did its thing.

The sentiment is from a Penny Black Creative die set called Awesome.  I borrowed a technique that Therese Calvird uses regularly where she die cuts the sentiment from fun foam and then adheres the card stock sentiment over the top. I don’t know why I haven’t tried it before, but it worked a treat too.
