Thank You Fossils

 There are techniques that will yield a unique background each and every time. This fossil stone background technique is a prime example. Take a look.


   Whisper White A-2
   Glossy White 5-1/4 x 4

   Orchid Opulence
   Wisteria Wonder

   Fossil Stone Background
   Die Cutting

   Well Written Framelits Dies
   Transparency Sheets or Acetate (2)
   Rubber Brayer

Begin by choosing two coordinating inks. Apply each ink on one transparency sheet or acetate. Apply enough ink in an area to cover your card.

Next, smoosh the sheets together and gently rub your hands over the sheets. There will be air bubbles...which is part of the technique. The idea is to let the colors blend together.

Pull the sheets apart and insert two glossy panels. The glossy side should face the ink. 

Close the sheets over the cards and brayer them using a rubber brayer.

Take them out and let them dry. You will then have two beautiful backgrounds.

I chose to add some black die cuts onto my background.
