Some time ago I saw a technique video on how to make a background using inks and your embossing folders at Splitcoast Stampers. I admired the look achieved with that technique and also liked the fact that I could use my embossing folders for more than just regular embossing.
This is my first attempt with the technique and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Celtic Knot. It involved using Distress Inks in the colors of Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. I simply directly added the colors by swiping the ink pads across the folder and then spritzing with water before I placed my white card stock on top.
Once the background was dry enough I stamped the sentiment from Embossing Arts called Favorite Lucky Charm. It is available at I Brake for Stamps. The card was completed by adding the panel to layers of complimentary card stock and adding a few dark green pearls for embellishment.
Well, I made several of these and will be using them for my shut-in friends for St. Patrick's Day.
Have a great week and thanks so much for visiting my blog.
