Our stamp group challenge for this week is to use Jennifer McGruire's technique you can see HERE.
She starts the technique around the 5 minute mark. You use your die cut machine along with your embossing mat, then lay your very inky background on top of the mat, then a stencil, then a baby wipe the same size as your card front, run it through your machine and the baby wipe lifts the ink where your stencil was.
I used two inks for mine with the center being lighter. I like the soft touch it gave to it. My niece in law's sister passed and I thought this background would be nice for a sympathy card. That was the other part of the challenge in our group to actually mail out our cards, that isn't hard for me because at least 98% of my cards go in the mail.
This worked out well for the Flower Challenge blog.
