Oxide Ink Cling Wrap Background Tutorial

Donna here with the presentation of the week for The House That Stamps Built.  I choose Distress Oxide Cling Wrap Background and had a lot of fun with this.  I hope you will enjoy my tutorial and give this technique a try.  I will be posting more cards at a later date that I make with more of the fun backgrounds I created!

The supplies you will need are: cling wrap, Oxide Distress Inks,  (you can substitute watercolor powders or watercolors), a spray bottle of water, watercolor paper (you can substitute a good quality glossy card stock).

I am going to explain two versions, both are fun and striking, the second version requires more time patience.

Version one:
1) Spread Cling wrap on your work surface.  Smoosh Distress Oxide inks on the cling wrap,  on my second go round I did not overlap them as much and liked those results better:
2)  Spritz liberally with water: 
3) Set card stock (4 /1/4 by 5 1/2 ") on the ink.  Press down and scrunch the cling wrap a bit: 

4) Flip over and scrunch cling wrap up and add any more colors to achieve desired look and more of a scrunched look.:

Second version:  After laying the cardstock down on the Distress Oxide Inks flip over and let dry completely, no heat tool,  be patient.

Complete cards as desired:


I hope you enjoyed this technique and will give it a try, I would enjoy seeing your creations!

I absolutely LOVE the background on your first card. It took my breath away! How long dies it take for these to dry? I have been asked to teach a class on this technique, but I worry about the length of time they would take to dry, especially with the plastic wrap covering them. We usually make 3 cards in 2 hours. If we made the three background pieces right away, would they be dry soon enough for us to use them on a card within a 2-hour time frame?
