Hi, crafty friends. Today’s technique shares how to create two backgrounds from one technique. I love time savers like this one. I created both of these cards in under fifteen minutes. It’s a great technique when you’re short on time and want to make multiple cards…
For the first card, I inked up THIS gorgeous stencil with a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks (all our listed below in the supply list).
I made sure to overlap the colors to create new colors in between.
Since the stencil had all of that ink on top of it, I used it to create another background…
I removed the stencil from the first background and sprayed a mist of water on top. Then I laid a piece of THIS cardstock on top and applied pressure with my fingers. I love the artsy look it gives and since we sprayed the ink with water, it gives a softer look. It also gives a totally different look because you’re using a different pattern of the stencil.
I wanted to keep these cards simple and keep the focus on the backgrounds. I did spray them both with THIS for some shine and added THIS die-cut on each. I used THIS to round the bottom corners of the cards.
I hope you give this simple technique a try and get two backgrounds out of one technique.
Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day.
