I could’t choose just one color scheme to use with Daisie Background, so I made a set of 4-Bar cards. This gave me the chance to experiment with color and play with lots of sentiments!
The first step in this resist backgroud technique is to create a colorful background. I did this by ink blending using 3-4 inks on each panel.
Next I clear heat embossed Daisie background onto each panel. They look pretty like this, but just wait for the magic!
The last step that really brings the cards to life, is to ink blend over the entire piece with black ink. Water based ink works best, so I used Memento tuxedo black. Wipe over the top with a dry cloth to remove any extra ink from on top of the embossing powder.
I finished up each of the cards by mounting them on a white 3 1/2″ by 5″ card base, and adding a stamped sentiment. This sentiment is from Roadies Volume 1. I cut it into a square and adhered it with craft foam on top of a vellum banner.
This card’s sentiment is from #beautifulmess. I fussy cut the heart and popped it up on craft foam.
This sentiment is from Chin Up Buttercup, also fussy cut and on craft foam.
Last card! This one is horizontal so it could fit the long sentiment. This sentiment is from Compliments Volume 2. I popped it up on craft foam and backed it with a thin vellum banner.
