Easy Backgrounds For Batch Cardmaking

Hello, Sylvia here with a tutorial to show how to achieve an inked background for your stamping quickly and in various colours and sizes.  This technique can be used directly onto your card blank or onto a piece of card for matting and layering.

Materials needed:

Take an acrylic block and add coloured inks directly onto it.

Spritz with a little water then stamp the inked block directly onto your card.  Lift the block and add a little more ink if you want a deeper colour, but be careful not to add too much as the colours may mix and go muddy.

Allow the inked panel to dry then stamp the image.

Mat the inked and stamped panel onto co-ordinating coloured card.

You can use any size acrylic block for this technique, here are a few pieces I made ready for making into cards.

Add embellishments and a sentiment  for a quick and easy card.

Sylv xx
