What a beautiful time of year this is....I love spring & all it brings!!
so......I thought I would go with the whole spring theme and show you how I like to create my own pattern paper!!
Versamark ink pad
Light coloured card stock found here
Stamp sets are the best to use such as the Kaiser brand type I used as they are all coordinating.
This is really easy, quick & looks fantastic as the versamark leaves a watermark type effect on your card.
Choose the design you wish to achieve...load your stamps with versamark ......and stamp away ....its that easy........
Don't be too worried if you make a mistake because you can always stamp on a separate piece of card cut around the stamped image and paste it for a 3d layered effect!!...this can also be done in different coloured inks for a layered effect!!
Once you have achieved the desired effect you just design your lo and here is my finished sample
There are no hard or fast rules with this technique you create your paper as you wish as much or as little as you like!!...hope some of you may wish to create your own pattern paper & I cant wait to see your own pp layouts in the gallery!!
Have fun & happy scrapping
