Blended backgrounds

I’ve been playing with a mix of watercolor and ink blended backgrounds, for other examples on my blog you can look here or here. 🙂


Using a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp I stamped it on an A2 panel in Versamark ink.  Versamark ink is clear and sticky and allows you to pour embossing powder over the panel then heat set it.  The embossing powder, once heat set, resists the ink blending and allows you to have a slightly raised background in a color of your choice – depending on the embossing powder you choose.

Using distress inks and my ink blending tool I used light circular motions to lay down color on the A2 panel.  I set the background aside and stamped the little girls from The Greeting Farm in My Favorite Things hybrid ink on Neenah card stock.  I colored all the girls with copic markers and then fussy cut each and attached them to the background panel.

The sentiment is a die cut from Lawn Fawn that I cut multiple times and glued together.  Once I’d attached it to the panel I covered it in glossy accents and added some yellow sequins to finish the card!


Thanks for stopping by!
