This is a technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter called a Bandanna technique. I made the background paper with alcohol inks on glossy cardstock, then ran it through the cuttlebug embossing folder. I hit the embossed parts with a purple dye inkpad and allowed it to dry. Then I took a white Jelly Roll Glaze pen and put dots around all the embossed parts. It looks really cool in real life.
I spent the morning at the community pool with my youngest granddaughter. She's been so good and is so excited for school to start. She has been a pure joy and one of the reasons I haven't stamped much.
We are due for our afternoon thunderstorm, so I will sign off for now. Hope you are getting some crafting done, and we'll talk again later.
