Distress Oxide Technique – save the crafty YouTuber hop

Hello crafters – I’m super excited to be a part of the HUGE ‘Save the crafty YouTuber blog hop’. YouTube recently announced changes to the conditions you must meet before you can earn any revenue from your YouTube channel. This revenue helps to support the costs of running a channel and so some of the biggest names in the crafting industry have come together to support our YouTube channels.

For my tutorial I wanted to share a technique I watched Tim Holtz demo recently at Creativation showing how you can layer up distress ink on glossy alcohol card stack and then use distress micro glaze to seal in the colours and reveal the layers.

I created two cards from one sheet by die cutting nesting rectangles and used a large heat embossed sentiment to complete the design. This is a great technique to create interesting backgrounds for your cards and no two will ever look exactly the same.

You can watch the video by clicking on the thumbnail below or by clicking herember to comment on the video confirming if you are based in USA or ‘International’ for all other locations.

At my stop on the hop you have the chance to win 2 Catherine Pooler inks (USA only) or a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp (worldwide). Winners will be chosen on 26th Febuary and will have until 10th March to claim their prize.
