Today's tutorial on Splitcoast will teach you a fun way to use inks or paints to create a 'stamped' background with an embossing folder. That's something I've been playing with too, but using other mediums - so here's my video using the Inktense Blocks, to add more options to your prints!
The benefit of using the Inktense mediums is that they are permanent when dry - if you want to add more mixed media layers or even more layers of Inktense ink prints, the colors will remain true without bleeding together. Here's an example of what I mean... this is a screen shot of the card panel below when I printed it.
I brought some of my smaller unmounted House Mouse stamps with me, and I love this little guy... so messy and sweet. He's from Joanna Sheen's webstore.
Hope you'll check out Audrie's tutorial, and also take some time to experiment with the mediums you have at home!
