I'm wasn't sure what this technique should be called but think 'scrunch' is a good description.
When my Stampin' Up! orders arrive, they are well packaged in lots of brown packing paper, which I try and recycle for different purposes. I love textured effects and also making the perfect co-ordinating background for projects.
I've done this technique a long while back with scrunched up ring binder poly pockets into drops of re-inker on a tile. This way is less messy and recycling 'free' paper.
Screw up ball of paper and dab onto ink pad - here I've used Old Olive ink pad. Randomly 'stamp' it all over your chosen piece of card.
Next repeat with your 2nd chosen colour - here I've used Pool Party ink pad.
Finally repeat with 3rd chosen colour - here I've used Rose Red ink pad.
You now have a piece of background card to use as you wish.
Here's are a set of 3 cards I've made using the Card Candy Toppers posted yesterday using this technique as a background.
I hope you like this effect and have fun experimenting with your own colour combinations.
