Hello. Gaylynn here with my Technique Time series. Today, I am sharing a watermark background card with added accents in white and gray.
Adding a watermark background is one way to add soft stamping detail to a card. It can easily be made to coordinate with the main card focus.
Sentiment: Just roll with it.
Here are helpful tips for creating a watermark background for a card. First, trim or die-cut a background panel from colored cardstock. Then, stamp and trim the sentiment panel. Next, using the mini Misti stamp positioner and VersaMark ink or watermark ink, stamp the toilet paper rolls and the hearts all around the cardstock panel. Optional, repeat the stamping to get the best stamp impression. Next, add white accents to the tp rolls using a colored pencil. Also, add gray color accents to the roll on the sentiment panel to create a bit of dimension. I used gray Copic markers, but gray colored pencils would work, also. Finally, layer the card, add the sentiment tag and the twine, to finish.
