Today, I am sharing a new I Brake For Stamps creation. I continue to play around with the bisters and have a bister background to share. For me, it's about controlling the color saturation. There is a fine line between beautiful color and muddied background. The key is water and movement. I created this background by layering multiple dippings of bister. This little "dip" method works great for a marbled look.
I began by sprinkling some bisters on my non-stick craft sheet and then generously sprtized with water. After larger pools of wet bisters formed, I dipped my cardstock into the inks. Dry. Repeat. And, do it again! And, again and again, until you get the look you want.
To finish off this earthy looking card, I waited until the background was completely dry (over night). Then, I embossed Fennel Silhouette Negative directly on to it. A wide piece of burlap ribbon and some pearly accents finish things off.
Have a great day and, don't forget to be awesome! TTFN, Jane
