While I was playing with a Technique Junkie technique last week, I discovered this technique which I call Reversed Cuttlebug Technique.
This is a quick technique.Â The longest time is waiting for the pigment ink to dry.Â To avoid having to wait, you can gently dry with a heat gun or hair dryer.Â Rather than taking the time to dry the ink with a heat gun, I whipped up 10 backgrounds and let them rest after inking with pigment ink, and air dryed overnight.
My tutorial will show you how to create a background with dark coloured cardstock.Â At the end of the tutorial, I will give you more options for you to experiment with.
White pigment ink, brayer, Cuttlebug folder, cardstock and coloured ink pads
Run cardstock through Cuttlebug.
On the wrong side of the embossed cardstock, roll on white pigment ink and let dry.
Using Kaleidacolor, brayer over top of dried white pigment ink.
Here are some examples of backgrounds.Â The white snowflakes were embossed onto glossy paper, ensuring the gloss was on the wrong side of the Cuttlebug folder so the shine would be the “right side” for this technique.
Reversed Cuttlebug Technique Ideas
- Brayer dye ink overtop of white pigment ink
- Distress edges with a coordinating ink
- For a high gloss finish, clear emboss overtop of your finished background
- Great background for ATC’s
