Hello bloggers! I'm currently in the process of developing new classes for the fall and winter months at Creations Galore. This means lots of experimenting. I went to work creating backgrounds with embossing powders and inks. The result was not at all what I had envisioned; however, I loved the results. Take a look:
To create this background, I first stamped Vintage Wallpaper with Versamark Watermark onto glossy paper. I heat set the clear ink in hopes it would act as a resist. And it did! I added Rusty Hinge Distress Stain over the stamped design. Lastly, I used a paper towel to move the ink up and down the paper, creating streaks and adding color to the resist. The result was a brightly colored vintage background. What do you think?
The sentiment comes from the Life is Beautiful set from Market Street Stamps and was stamped on vellum with StazOn ink. I absolutely love the MyStik Vellum Adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives. You truly cannot see the strips of adhesive, making vellum one of my favorite materials to add to a card.
Thanks for stopping by... I hope you'll be inspired to do some experimenting of your own.
