Life in A Distressing World, Adventures With Oxide Inks (Part 10)

'Woodn't' it Be Nice!

Today, we are looking at getting some cool wood effects with our inks and a wood effect background stamp.

Polished Wood Background

Starting off with a basic background using Vintage Photo Oxide on a glossy or photo paper which is left to dry

Stamping on top creates an oxidisation, which you can polish off

This gives a pretty good polished wood effect!

Weathered Wood Background

Here I created a background as before using a mix of inks here to give depth, then stamping with a wet stamp, to give the oxidised effect on the woodgrain.


Adding some detail with my Distress Markers, gives a fantastic weathered wood effect. Perhaps a nice card idea for Father's Day?
