Distress Oxide Ink on Glosy Paper with Distress Glaze- Experimenting

I love experimenting with all my craft products and I am always wondering "what happens if I...?".
My other friend Cat, is horrified at the things I mix together sometimes, but if we don't try different techniques how will we learn? How do you think the experts became experts in their field? I guess because of the cost of materials sometimes, people don't want to waste their products, which is fair enough. So I experiment on ATC (Artist Trading Card) sized samples so I don't waste a lot, but can still see if I will be successful or not.
A friend of mine (Hi Ric:) asked me to show him some samples of what it looks like when  Ranger and Tom Holtz's Distress Oxides are applied to Glossy Paper and then covered in Distress Glaze. I had fun using this Technique so I decided to video my findings. It is only the second video I have ever done, so please be kind as I am learning about cameras and editing software etc. I am always open to suggestions, tips and questions as well.
