At this month's card classes we made or will be making the Night of Navy card using this technique. After stamping and embossing the image, you paint the background using reinker and an aqua painter, dry
and repeat if you want the background darker. To add a little texture when the card is dry you add a stamped image using the same color ink pad and stamp. After the ladies left on Sunday, I decided to create the Elegant Eggplant card for a friend of mine who lost her mom. I made the background much darker than the Night of Navy card, so you cannot see the stamped image as well. Either way, both cards look nice and the technique is fun to use. You never know just what your card will look like! Have a great day!
