I wanted a masculine card with a somewhat “masculine” sentiment for a college-aged male to help cheer him up. I got new distress oxide inks to play with and the coverage is awesome!
I masked off half of the card diagonally, and then used an round ink blending tool. TIP: The clarity brushes work better with distress inks, not distress oxide.
Stamping with distress oxide inks also comes across smooth as well. I used my MISTI just in case I had to double stamp, but the first try gave perfect coverage.
