I wanted to play with the new oxide inks today and thought, “How hard could it be?”  I have to say that I haven’t really gotten used to them yet and really didn’t feel like anything I produced was truly amazing.  I’ve watched so many other people use them and thought I could do something with a stencil, but that didn’t work. Then I tried using a stencil with water to remove the ink from under the stencil and that didn’t really work either.  So I went to plan C.  I had made some stamps out of fun foam shapes to show others how to make their own stamps.  I hadn’t cut them apart or used them yet, so decided this was the perfect opportunity to use the oxide inks with them.  I made a background image using them and it came out fine, but honestly, so far, I’m not thrilled with them.  I thought I would be blown away by the inks and I’m not sure why I’m not.  Maybe it’s because I just spent three hours and have one mediocre card to show for it.  Maybe it’s because I had some really great plans for the inks (in my head) and none of them worked.  Regardless, I’ll have to find a technique that works for me and maybe then I’ll fall in love with them.  Then again, maybe not.

  1. Don’t worry and stress if you don’t like these inks. Not everyone will like them. I saw a video the other day where someone used the refills and a make-up sponge and it was so cool. I will try try to find it and send it to you. I really enjoy your posts and videos!!! Have a great day!!
