Creating a Subtle Background with Spectrum Noir Ink Refills

Today, I'm sharing a subtle colorful scene featuring images  from  Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy Set - Spring and Sheena -a little bit scenic Silhouette Garden.

To make this scene, I stamped the images onto semi-glossy cardstock with a watermark ink pad, sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set.

To create the subtle background, I spritzed a paper towel with alcohol, dropped Spectrum Noir ink refills and pulled color from the top of the scene to bottom. Colors used:  DG2, PL2, PP4, TB4.

To give the flowers a little color, I dripped a little ink onto an acrylic block used a paint brush. I also brushed green over the leaves.  The embossed part of the images act as a resist, and any color fills in around it.

There are so many fun techniques you can do with the ink refills!
