Galaxy Backgrounds with Distress Oxide Inks

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing how to create galaxy backgrounds with Distress Oxides inks. I basically turned on my camera as I had a play with my inks and mixed up the application of ink in order to get some slight variations in the background effect. I have a video where I walk you through my thoughts a bit more. 

As mentioned in the video if you do not have any space themed stamps I think you could use these same techniques and some slightly different colors to create an ocean background. Below I'm going to share a closer look at the end result of each ink application type and some finished cards. I will also share the supplies at the end of the post.

Above is traditional ink blended background.

Above is the background created by pressing the paper into wet ink.

Above is the background created by smooshing the ink pads on to the paper and then spritzing them with water and drying with a heat gun. 

All backgrounds were created with watercolor paper but thick cardstock would also work. I create like 10 backgrounds at once because if I'm going to make a mess I want to have a pile of cards to show for it.
