Handmade Plaid Backgournd


This was such a fun background to make. It was so RELAXING to do. I had a great time doing this and will be doing a video soon on how to do it. My channel is Ink Paper Scissors Fun. I saw this technique on You Tube on Nancy's Channel. I would love for you to head on over and check out her channel. Please tell her that Lisa from Handmade Happiness sent you.

Mine was made with Oxide Inks. Most of you probably know that you can use your Oxide Inks to water color. I took the inks and put them on my desk and sprayed with water and painted . Check back later this week for pictures of that, so  you can see how I did it.
 My new favorite colors are Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers. I added white gesso for the white line as my white acrylic paint was missing. You can see that the picture below is  more muted as I took Vintage photo and lightly ink the panel.

This sweet coffee pot is from Darcie's heart and home stamps. It's called Mocha Me Crazy. I 

Vintage photo and the water technique.
The link above will take you to a previous blog post here I show pictures of this. The process is the
same just a different stamp. I heat embossed this one and cut it on the Scan N Cut. I added brown

 enamel dot and the sentiment But First Coffee.

I'm linking this card to the Addicted to Stamps and more blogs weekly challenge #391. I hope you 

will head over and check them out.
