New oxides--yay

Morning and A Happy New Year to everyone-great to be back and thank you for the get well wishes on here and FB-much appreciated.Back with a bang and three DT posts today-the last one for the ATG challenge at Love To Scrap sponsored by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps who really generously supplied all the DT with sets of stamps.I used the Casual Comfort set which included 4 foliage stamps and 12 sentiment stamps.I stamped the foliage stamps on the card front and then wiped over with my only two new oxide inks(need more!)The other two backgrounds were made with same oxides/one on white card and one on black card then over stamped on the last layer,matted with black cardsrock and done-quite impressed with this card TBH.
Also a belated welcome to my new follower--Meg.

Love this shade of oxide, and aren't these fabulous inks? I like the somber tones your swiping created, and it shows off these pretty foliage images just wonderfully. Happy New Year, and I hope it will be a great year for you & your loved ones. TFS & all the many comments you were so kind to leave in 2017! Looking forward to seeing more of your excellent work in 2018. Hugs
