Step Three:

Flatten out the paper and ink the creases using the direct to paper (DTP) technique. I’m using Tea Dye Distress ink.

Step Four:

Crumple the paper once again, flatten out and ink the creases with a darker ink. I’m using Ancient Page Sienna ink. Repeat steps 3 & 4 with a different ink color. I’m using the Distress Fired Brick ink.

Step Five: (Optional)

I wanted to tone the color down a little, so I used the Soft Wheat ink all over the paper.

Step Six:

Crumple the paper a final time, smooth out and ink the creases with the metallic gold pigment ink. I‘m using the Encore Ultimate Metallic Gold ink.

Step Seven:

Sprinkle on the embossing powder. Do not cover the entire paper. I used a little measuring spoon to drop the powder here and there. Tap off the excess and return to the jar. Heat the powder until melted and until any non coated areas are dry.

Step Eight:

Enjoy your finished background! Here’s a card example using a piece of this finished background. I used it for a backing layer for some color behind the leaves on the marigold panel.
