More Rubbed Background Ideas

Have you tried it yet?  Well, if you have and you've mastered the basic technique, let me show you what you can do next.  Create a Batik look by flicking the inked CS with water either by using either your fingers or a paint brush.  It will give you this look:

Now doesn't that look cool?  Let's see some projects made with this fun looking paper.

For both of these bookmarks, I heat embossed the image with black embossing powder.  I added some Gold Spritz spray to the image on the right to give it a little sparkle.

Here is another way to change it up.  Spray a stamp of your choice (a solid image works best) with water then stamp it to your inked background. The water, like in the flicking sample, will wick up the ink and leave a "white" spot.
Lastly, you can also stamp your inked CS background with ink.  Here I used the Sanded background stamp to give the inked paper a rustic look.

So, I hope you like what you've seen and you'll get it a try.  Please leave me a comment and let me know if you would like to see more postings like this.  There are so many different ways to change up this technique, so see what you can do.....I'd love to see what you can come up with!

Have a wonderful day!
