Distress Oxide now comes in a spray format! Julie will show how you can easily blend the sprays on watercolor paper and masking for a distress oxidized background!

Blended Backgrounds with Distress Oxide Sprays and Essentials by Ellen


  • Start with a little Oxide spray; it goes a long way and you can always add more later.
  • Spritzing the Spray onto a craft mat and then spraying it with water enables you to very quickly and easily blend—there’s hardly any resistance to the blending tool on the watercolor paper surface.
  • Gloves are handy…
  • As Julie shows in the video, a sand eraser can help save your project when you have a blemish.
  • If you lose those little dots from your die cut letter “ i “, you can swap in NUVO drops!

    Thanks for this demo – I. like you hate messes, so I had decided not to even think about getting these (or any other) sprays. But, looks like they can be controlled. Thanks, too, for sharing your “oops” – it always helps to see a master making the same mistakes that I do. Great technique, great card, great video…..guess you are just simply GREAT! Hugs!

    Oh good, just when I had a reasonable number of oxide pads in my collection, Julie makes me want the sprays… 😛
