After watching a Tim Holtz video yesterday, I decided to give the Distress Oxide inks a try on Glossy White cardstock. What you can't see in the photo is the overall shiny look to the card.  I must say that I do like the look of them on the glossy.

It was a bit of a learning curve for me but I am happy with the outcome.  One of the thing I discovered is once completely dry, the color will rub off on your fingers.  To eliminate this for the recipient, I simply went over it gently with a paper towel.  It took off all the "chalky" feel and left a very nice shiny look.  It's the only time I have known these inks to rub off.  On the other papers I've used them on that does not happen.  By completely dry, I mean that I dried each layer of color I applied with my heat tool then, set it aside to dry overnight.

Stamp Set:  Believe (Momenta); Distress Oxide Inks:  Faded Jeans, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick (Tim Holtz); Cardstock:  Always Artichoke, Glossy White (both Stampin' Up!); Other:  Sequins, White Blizzard Glitter Drops (Nuvo)

The sketch I used is from the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
