Simon Hurley create. // Watercolor Dye Ink Reinker Backgrounds

I'm back with more inspiration using Simon Hurley create. dye ink reinkers! I'm doing an ink smooshing watercolor emboss resist backgrounds - whew that's a mouthful! But I'm so excited about these backgrounds! Sit back and enjoy!

It's no secret! I love making my own backgrounds. It's probably my favorite part about cardmaking. And I love when I can get multiple cards from one background. Today I made three watercolored backgrounds and cut them up to create 6 cards!

Be sure to watch my video at the beginning of this post. I learned a lot as I played around and I have some tips and tricks to share with you! For all of my backgrounds I started by white heat embossing a background stamp from Simon Hurley create. I used School Scribbles, Watercolor Blooms, and Prom Dress. After my backgrounds were heat embossed I dropped some drops of Simon Hurley create. Dye Ink Reinkers onto my glass work surface and sprayed them with water and put my backgrounds face down into the ink. I dabbed off some ink and dunked my cardstock again and again until I had the look that I wanted.

Once all of my backgrounds were inky and gorgeous I did the unthinkable and cut them in half! Well ... not exactly half - but I cut them nonetheless! It's panic inducing, but I'm glad I did! I was able to get 6 cards from 3 simple backgrounds! I used the Encouraging Words stamp set and Simon Hurley create. dye inks to stamp sentiments on the white space of all of my cards.

That's it! So simple and easy, but I really love the bright impact these cards have! Head over to Simon Hurley create. and grab your background stamps and dye ink reinkers and make some beautiful backgrounds! See you soon!
