Backgrounds Making a Comeback

Penny Black has just released some new background stamps and this is one called Sweetness that I used to create this card.  I love the look of the big chunky flowers...so easy work with too.  Here is what I did.

I inked the stamp with Versamark then embossed the piece with white.  When cool, I painted the flowers and stems with Distress inks and a water pen.  Just rub some ink directly from your ink pad onto an acrylic block then pick up the colour with a water pen or you could use a paint brush and water and paint the open areas that are not embossed.  I love that you can vary the colour using the inks.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look...hope you have a great weekend.  

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ eb powder/ Versamark/ pop dots/ Scor-bug/ pop dots
