Rubber Stamp Background Patterns + Distress Inks
New rubber stamp sheet with patterns for making your own decorative paper or artist trading card backgrounds.
I recently purchased every color of distress inks (all of the reinker refill bottles from joann online and a few of the ink pads in my favorite colors. I went nuts for them and Joann.com usually has them on sale 30 - 40% off, so I recommend ordering there!) Then I picked up some "Mini Misters" spray bottles at Michaels. Here's the results of my first time playing with the reinkers. I'm pretty happy with them. They are easy to work with and can be used to create watercolor paint effects.

I've got a couple more stamp sheets and another project to show you... very soon!
