Need a quick and simple background technique for a greeting card? See how I create a patterned background with large sponge daubers and Memento Ink. Sponge daubers are dense foam and can behave like a soft textured circle stamp when inked up heavily. This technique is a perfect start for a card, art journal or even a scrapbook page. The color scheme and options are really endless.
Time: 45 Minutes
Use a large dauber to apply Memento Inks to the card panel.
Stamp floral images onto card panel with Memento in Tuxedo Black.
Stamp a single flower and leaf image onto a separate piece of cardstock (with same dauber background) and cut out.
Enhance single flower/leaf images with Memento Dual Tip Markers.
Apply London Fog Memento to Craft Mat and add water; add ink splatters to the card panel.
Edge card panel with Memento in London Fog.
Use cutting die to die cut decorative strip from Rinea Foil paper.
Adhere Rinea foil paper element to the card base.
Adhere Single flower/leaf to the card panel with double-sided mounting tape. Highlight with a glitter pen.
Double stamp sentiment. First stamp in Angel Pink then again, slightly offset, with Tuxedo Black.
