Another way to make a background..

Hi there,
last time I showed you how to make your own background with ink and embossing folders, well for today I made another fun tutorial for you to show you, how to make your own background with stamps, ink and embossing powder.

3 or more colors of distress ink in one color range
Ink blending tool, Ink blending foam
Versamark ink, Archival Jet Black
Embossing powder clear
Tag, Heattool, Craftsheet

Stamp background stamp on the tag with Versamark ink pad, emboss with clear
embossing powder and heat with heat tool.

With ink blending tool apply the the lightest color of the range over the complete tag. Use circular motions with the blending tool. Start this circular motion on your craftsheet (or white paper) and during that circling motion you go on to the tag! This will give you a better result with the inking, and you will not get any stripes on it.…Repeat these steps with each time a darker ink from the range and leave a little light color open.

Take a piece of cloth and make it damp with a Mini mister.. and go lightly over the tag. This way you take off the color of the embossed part.
Cut out little gift tags and stamp the Inky impressions text on them.

Hope you like this other way of making a background. This technique can be used on anything you want... you can make a background for a card, a Tag (like I did) just anything... let your imagination flow and just start playing!

Next time I will take you to a higher level of skills in making fun backgrounds with masks and the cute and lovely Inky Impressions stamps.

Hope to see you again.. and please.. if you give this a try.. please show us at one of the fun challenges that is running HERE!

With lots of love,



Thank you for visiting. We hope that we inspired you.
