This is a fun technique that makes a great background for cards, tags, and scrapbooks. You can use just about any stamp or color of ink you have for the technique. I used Ranger Distress Inks, Inkadinkado’s Utopiary Stamps (the big tree), and Tim Holtz Urban Tapestry Stamp Set (background splotches). The most important of all is Clear Embossing Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. Other miscellaneous items that I used were a heat tool, a foam ink blending tool, and then to finish this project as a card, I used a birthday stamp to make a tag, 2 leaves, and a piece of twine for the bow.
