Tutorial for Making Your Own Patterned Paper

From Adriel:

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy tutorial with you on how to make your own patterned paper using rubber stamps, ink, sponging and color spritzing! Next time your needing some background paper or printed paper of some sort, use the supplies you have and put them to good use!

You will need the following supplies to make the paper I will be showing you today, but you can use different stamps and ink to achieve different results:

Whisper White CS
Razzle Dazzle set
More Mustard ink pad and marker
Summer Sun ink pad
Color Spritzer Tool
1. Stamp the large floral image in a pattern on the Whisper White CS using Summer Sun ink.
2. Use the color spritzer tool with the More Mustard marker on the stamped surface. Add as much speckling as desired.
3. Sponge More Mustard ink on stamped surface all over. Apply lightly and go back over areas to darken if desired.
4. Ta-da!! Your patterned paper is now ready for you to create with!

5. I took it a step further and crumpled up the paper and used it on this card.
Isn't that fun?! Okay, now you try it out and show us what you create using this technique!
BTW, I will be putting the card I made up for sale in our Etsy shop within the next day or so!
