After watching a technique video by Lydia Fiedler where she applied dye ink pads to a gel press and then used stamps to remove some of the ink, I decided to give this a try using Distress Oxides. I have a small 3×5 inch gel press and it worked great. Lydia used a MISTI (stamp positioning tool) and so did I. The stamp positioning tool gives you the opportunity to keep the gel press stationary for multiple layers of colors. I had a lot of fun with this technique and will certainly be making more backgrounds like this in the future.
