Wednesday is a new challenge at Paper Pretties #299 - this challenge is TECHNIQUE...
Let see what you have to show as your technique. Tell us what you did.
I thought it best to do photos vs. saying what my technique was. I love the different looks this can give and it's quite simple. Ink, embossing folder and your paper choice. See photos below on how I did my background...
Just ink the inside top flap with what your die/chalk ink
very - very carefully lay your card stock inside and close the top w/o moving it around
run it through your embossing/die cut machine
open and you should have a nice layer of ink on the lower part and the top part should be the card stock color. If you wish for the opposite look you can ink the bottom part of the embossing folder and then your ink will be on the raised part vs. the lower part. I wanted my sky to be blue and the cloud (swirls) to be lighter.
Here is my card using the above technique. I wanted a clouds effect. I used the image "story time Sophie" stamp and thought the green ribbon gave a grassy look. I had the perfect brad to add to the card.
