I was curious to try out these new inks. I had seen some videos with Tim Holtz demoing them at CHA 2017 and they looked intriguing.
They do give a kind of chalky appearance but dry very quickly and when combined with Distress Inks I think they give a really great look with lots of depth and interest. Here I combined Broken China, Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, and Faded Jeans in both Oxides and Inks. I used the Inks more like highlights, adding them in very small areas. Once I had blended them I splashed the card with some water. On top of the background I stamped Hero Arts layered Koi stamp set using Versamagic chalk inks.
I love the final look of the card, the distress Inks and Oxides give it such depth, it almost looks 3D.
