I have been quite busy this week making some backgrounds using old techniques that I had found when rummaging through outdated stamping magazines....having a bit of a clear out to make way for new stuff...as you do!
These were done by inking up a brayer with a light coloured ink(Adirondak Butterscotch or Lettuce) then spritzing the brayer and rolling off onto cardstock. Then ink up the brayer without cleaning with a darker ink(Adirondak Denim or Eggplant) spritz brayer again and roll lightly over the top. Voila instant background. Simple but effective.
