Instagram Tip With Layered Backgrounds!

My heart skipped a beat again today!!


***I HAVE ANOTHER TIP UP ON STAMPIN' UP!'S INSTAGRAM PAGE!!!***  It seriously makes my heart flutter when I open up Instagram and see that Stampin' Up! has tagged me.  Stampin' Up! has added SOOOOOO much to my life.  The fact that I can give back in such a small way is such a dream for me.  I love it!  So follow me on Instagram or Facebook (@designwithink or Design With Ink) or just follow along here! 

I used Pigment Sprinkles and Embossing Paste for this layered background.  But the possibilities are endless!! (Embossing folders, watercoloring, Designer Series Paper, stamping, punches, framelits, etc, etc!!!)   I truly 💕 LOVE LOVE LOVE 💕 the Pigment Sprinkles though!  And the Embossing Paste!


Colors: Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink Pads: Pigment Sprinkles: Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Thick Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Broadway Birthday
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Broadway Lights Dies, Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Palette Knives, Heat Tool, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch
Accessories: Whisper White Embossing Powder, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Shimmery White Embossing Paste, Woven Threads Sequin Assortment

The steps I took here were to first just spritz a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to get it nice and wet.  Then just tap some of the Melon Mambo Pigments Sprinkles onto the wet paper.  (*Note:  a little big goes a long way here!  So just open up the bottle, and tap the container over your project lightly so just a little comes out.) 


And some Mango Melody sprinkles next:


Spritz the paper a little more to get the colors to blend a bit and then either set aside to dry or dry it with the Heat Tool.


Once it is dry, use a Decorative Mask to add some Embossing Paste to the paper:


Lift up the mask and then let the paste dry:


Seriously there are so many options and I just love how gorgeous it looks!  And those Pigment Sprinkles are SO. MUCH. FUN!!!!  I'm in love!  😍😍😍
