Earlier this week, I was noodling around on Pinterest, as I do, and I found a really great technique for making inked backgrounds. I found the instructions on Suzz's blog, right here . I had so much fun with it that I used it for all five cards this week, plus one! Can you believe that each of these backgrounds started as a piece of plain white cardstock?
Each of these cards was made using three coordination colors of Distress Inks, applied to the waxed resist with a foam applicator. I edged all of the backgrounds with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, and also used the off cuts from my Silver Bullet Professional cutter as stencils to add a shadow layer of Distress inks behind my cardstock images. I am loving the subtle bit of dimension that it adds.
I hope you find time soon to try out this fun and easy background method. Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to this week!
