Just Add Ink #163

Hey Everyone

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is brought to us by the very talented Nikki Spencer. She’s given us the challenge to:

Just Add…….A Fun Background!

Now what this means is we challenge you to create an interesting background with something other than designer series paper. I reach for DSP to use in my background for every card I make, so this challenge had me thinking.

I’ve used the brayer embossing folder technique for my card today.  I’ve used this technique a few times on my cards but to add that little bit of extra fun-ness, I’ve used a brighter colour than what I generally use.  Tempting Turqoise is a colour that barely sees the light of day in my house, I do love it, but I rarely reach for it.  I wanted to give it a run and have teamed it with Basic Grey.  To achieve the effect on my background I ran my brayer over my Tempting Turquoise ink pad and then ran it over the debossed side of the embossing. I carefully laid a piece of Whisper White cardstock inside the embossing folder put it through my big shot.  The is the end result:
