Inks, Five Ways Day 2

Texture backgrounds anyone? Stampin' Up!'s Pattern Party Decorative Masks create awesome textured backgrounds for scrapbook pages, cards and more! You can use it with your inks and blend the color on or you can use your inks in a new way by blending it with our Embossing Paste to create a custom look and dimension on your project.

Today I'd like to show you how to use your inks with embossing paste to make a cool dimensional background.
Sorry for the glare here. I'm a card maker not a photographer! Now let's make that background!
First, choose your mask. This set comes with four different patterns. I chose the cloud image. Oh the possibilities!
Second, choose your color. I decided on pool party for my clouds. Smoosh the stamp pad directly to a craft mat or whatever slick surface you have available to you.
 Then add the embossing paste and mix with a pallet knife.
Thoroughly mix in the ink color then adhere the mask to your card stock so it won't move around while you're applying the paste. I like to use good old fashioned scotch tape.
Now, apply the paste. You decide how dimensional you would like your background to be by the amount of paste you apply. I kept mine a bit thin and allowed some of the white card to show through the clouds. Keep in mind the thicker the paste the longer it takes to dry!

Once you reached your desired look, lift the mask from the card stock and quickly clean off your knife and mask. If you don't clean it right off then it may ruin your mask and you don't want that to happen! Once you've cleaned up your work space, allow the design to dry and then use it however you'd like, on a card, scrapbook page or whatever project you have in mind. I, of course, made a card.
This is my finished card,
I used Stampin' Up!'s Lift me up die and stamp set to make this card along with pool party, calypso coral and night of navy inks.  It's a bit cloud overload now that I'm looking at it but a fun and new way to use those inks!

Happy stamping my friends! See you tomorrow for another project!
