I saw a wonderful technique with the Distressed Oxides.
The instructions just said...ink paper...spritz stencil...place stencil on the inked paper...and oxidation takes place. Her paper had been inked in a medium blue and when she pulled up the stencil the oxidated part was darker and looked the form of the stencil. When I do it, it is just a mess.
- drying and not drying the first layer of ink
-more and less water on the stencil
-hopping up and down on one foot while pulling my hair out.
