Embossed Resist with Distress Oxides, MFT and Concord & 9th

 Trying out the new Distress Oxides has been so much fun and todays project is no exception.  These inks are a hybrid between pigment and dye inks, so they have the properties of both.  They heat emboss beautifully, blend seamlessly and easily and because they're the Distress formula, you can do all those delightful techniques as well. 
 Using a 6x6 MFT background stamp, I layered the inks across it on the diagonal and stamped it.  Using a MISTI here is an excellent idea, just in case you miss a bit (you'll see in the video where I did it).  After heat embossing it in clear, I went in and ink blended over the top to make the background stamp really pop.  The background was really vivid and I didn't want to detract from it, so I kept my finishing touches simple with the die cut sentiment and vellum butterfly.  Here's the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.
