Today I thought I’d share a background technique. I can sit for hours and make background for cards, tags, scrapbook embellishments and more. I used bright colors, but think of the possibilities using different color combinations.. think of Father’s Day cards with plaid.. in blues or neutral colors. Oh how fun! I have a video for you too, showing how i did the background using a brayer. So, get those brayers and ink pads ready.. lets make some cool and funky backgrounds!

Supplies I Used:
- Swallowtail Clear Mount Stamp
- Very Vanilla Card Stock – Tags
- Whisper White Card Stock – Card Base
- Lucky Limeade and Tempting Turquoise Card Stock
- Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon
- Classic Inks (Brights) in Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango( or oops, Pumpkin Pie!), Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Tempting Turquoise, and Rich Razzleberry
- Staz On Black Ink Pad

I hope you have some time to try this technique – it really is addicting and a lot of fun! Make several for future cards and tags n such so you have them on hand while you have your brayer out and available to you! Have a great day!! Take time to get inky and make pretty stuff! *hugs*
