Ink Blending Fun!

I've been having some fun making ink blended backgrounds using Distress Oxide Inks. They are so fun to play with and blend together so easily!
I've been trying to use things I haven't used before from my stash (hoard) and found this beautiful My Favourite Things 6x6" background stamp called "BG Floral Fantasy Background" (retired). I stamped it with embossing ink and then used some Altenew Crystal Clear Crisp Embossing Powder. Once it was heat set, I blended Distress Oxide Ink in Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet to create a coloured background. 
I cut the background into a 3x5 piece to create this card. I am also using a Impression Obsession Greetings Top Edger "Thinking of You" die. This is an A2 card size and I created my own card base using purple cardstock. A few purple gems finish off my card.
On this card I used the leftover inked background and the Penny Black "Wavy Stitched Edges" die. This die cuts your image in half, which was perfect! this way I could use a piece of it on the top and bottom. I used a Polka Dot Embossing folder and glued the ink background pieces on top. I added the Pretty ink Posh "Hummingbird Thanks" cuties for some interest. 

I was able to make these 2 cards from one 6x6 stamped background! How fun to get 2 for 1!!
Happy Stamping!
