Good Morning, stampers…
take a look at these three inky backgrounds!
Each one is mounted on their respective colors, and they all came from
my stash! That means that most of the work was already done, all they
needed was a greeting…don’t ya just love it when that happens?
After I cut them all the same size, I added the gold “hello” greeting to
each one to make them a set. They are both inky, and simple at the
same time, my friend is gonna love these!
This background is a combo of Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry.
It was made using the Acrylic Block Technique, at least that’s what
we are calling it here, because I don’t know the name of it. I even
looked on Pinterest and, this is the best guess I came up with. Ink
is added to a clear block, either with ink refills or markers, it’s
spritzed with water and then pressed onto watercolor paper.
I added even more water after I lifted the block, but you can still see
the line of pink where the ink puddled on the edge of the block.
This one is a mix of Elegant Eggplant and Night Of Navy ink on
watercolor paper, and it’s mounted on Elegant Eggplant.
Ink that was left over from another project was spritzed with
water on the mat and the paper was put face down on it. I let
it run and puddle, then, once it was dry, I flicked water on it
again to get even more movement.
Have you seen the Ombre Stampin’ Pads?
They are on page 180 of the Annual Catalog. If you have one, you
can make this quick and easy background! Just open up the ink
pad and swipe it across some Shimmery White Card Stock and,
give it a quick spritz of water…dab off the excess, and that’s it!
