Today's project and video tutorial are all about an easy background technique for your handmade cards.  Your stamps and ink can easily be used for so many techniques and accents on your crafting projects.

In this quick video, you will see a two-step technique.  Both can be used separately but also complement the other when combined.  Let's take a look and get ready to try this magic on your cards!

Easy Background Technique for Handmade Cards

Lisa's Inklings:
-Blending brushes work wonderfully to apply ink to card stock in a subtle way.
-The repetitive background stamping works well with smaller images as well as sentiments.
-The additional technique shown is the layering of identical stamped images to give depth and dimension.
