Distress Oxide Vs Distress Ink Halloween Blended Artist Trading Card Video Hop

Hello everyone and thank you so much for joining me !! I have these fun artist trading cards to share with you so let's jump right in.

As far as I have been told the only rule for ATC's is that they need to be 2.5 by 3.5 inches in size so I cut down some Neenah 80lb solar white for my bases and decided to blend one with my usual Distress Oxides and the other with the regular Distress inks in the exact same four colours, Milled Lavender, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Black Soot.

I found that the Oxides blended a lot smoother than the Inks however the inks were much more vibrant so they both have their uses and are stunning inks. If you would like to see me make these ATC's step by step please check out the video down below. Once the blending was done I flicked on some perfect pearls and set them aside to dry.

I stamped out the pumpkin images from a Stamp of the month club by Brutus Monroe in Copic safe ink and used V05 for the spider's eyes, YR14, YR16, YR09 for the pumpkin and E39, E29, E79 for the hat. Using my mini snips I fussy cut out both pumpkins and popped them up with some foam squares and added some black jewels from the PinkFresh Studios Essential Jewels mix.

I hope you guys really enjoyed these ATC's and will check out the video to see how they were made step by step. I cannot wait to see you all again with my next project!!
