MIM #108

Papertrey's MIM this week features a challenge from Heather Nichols to Ink our Backgrounds.
She gave a couple of examples, one was to clear emboss, then sponge ink with various colors.
Tried it, with reds and browns.
 
Background Basics: Super Stripes
Inks: Pure Poppy, Scarlett Jewel, Klassic Kraft, and Dark Chocolate.
Martha Stewart edge punch
Fabric ruffle (French General fabric)
Kaisercraft wooden dressform
Sentiment from Button Boutique on banner from In Stitches.
Kinda bent the saying to fit the banner.
Pure Poppy Twill ribbon, brad button
 
Always fun to learn new techniques! Never inked my own background, and I will be
doing it again!
