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!!
