Playing with Oxide Ink

Hello! It is fun to get new products and items to play with!  I just received Hero Arts July kit---first one that I ever bought---and it included Summer Flower and Creative Vases stamp sets and  Oxide Ink Iced Spruce and more.   I just had to try the Oxide ink after seeing Jennifer McGuire's post.  She makes me want all the colors of this ink.  And I liked the result in making the backgrounds for these 2 cards.
For the cards shown here, I started with  panels of white CS and sponged them with the Iced Spruce ink.  For the top one, I sprayed water on Hero Arts Floating Flowers cling stamp and laid it on the panel a couple of minutes. On the bottom card I used a very old SU background stamp Antique Cracking.  After drying my background panels, I finished with some die cut flower images that I stamped and colored with Copics.

Top card-Used Hero Arts Sweet Pea Bouquet, Butterfly, Watering Can, and Sentiment stamps and Frame Cut Dies . The can was stamped on a metallic silver left from a recycled box shown below.

Bottom Card-Used Hero Arts Sweet Peas and Bow stamps, Hero Arts Dies, Cheery Lynn die cuts, Mirror CS, White CS base, Blue Satin Ribbon layered on Light Blue Organdy Ribbon with Silver Thread.
