Distress Oxide Background Card

Today I played some more with my distress oxide inks. 
To create the panel, I used bristol smooth paper and Tim Holtz distress oxide inks.  I rubbed the inks onto my craft mat, spritzed water to them, and smooshed my card into the inks.  I repeated, heating between each addition of color, and added some water droplets to get the oxidation process going.  I used a scrap piece that I had left over from cutting larger pieces.

I black embossed a stamp from Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Floral Greetings set and a verse from their Blessed set.  I added the panel to an A2 lavender card, and added black lines above and below the panel with a black micron pen.  Some Studio Katia sparkling crystals finish off my card.
