05/23/2017 Update: Diamond Award winner at Color Dare #243.
One card for several challenges presented an opportunity to use new Oxide ink. I used the simple method of smearing ink onto the work surface, spritzing it with water and placing the cardstock onto the wet mess. I dried the card between dips into the watery ink to avoid a muddy look. As it turned out, I only had one color of Oxide ink for the color challenge so used regular Distress inks for the remainder.
