Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday. It is time for vacations and hitting the beach! I made a card using the beautiful Serena Mermaid. The technique I used does great for a water background. I hope you will join me in making some for yourself.
- paper towel with a pattern
- large multi-colored ink pad
- Sparkle embossing powder
- heat tool
Take the paper towel and fold it several times. I folded it to fit my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.
Now place the folded paper towel on top of the large multi-colored ink pad and brayer over the paper towel a few times.
The paper towel will look like this when finished. It needs to be pretty saturated with ink.
This time take white card stock and lay it on top of the inked side of the paper towel. Brayer the top several times.
Here is what the background looks like when you are finished.
When I saw this pattern, I wanted to make an underwater scene, so I used the Penboss , traced the swirl print with it, added Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. Now my "water" looks shimmery.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this technique. Have a great day!
