Some thoughts & More

This is another background that I actually came up with out of necessity. I was working at a store that was getting ready to close and never ordered in new product so I had to learn use what we had in new and creative ways. I actually submitted this to a publication years ago and they returned everything except the samples and then a couple of months later there was my technique. Oh well! I know the facts and now you do as well!

As you can see I have Diamond Glaze (a.k.a. Crystal Lacquer, Crystal Accents, Glossy Accents etc...) And then you need a variety of colors of re-inkers. You will also want to have your background card stock cut and ready.
Place a small amount of of the glaze on the foil. Add a few drops of color to the glaze.

Fold the foil up and mix the colors.

Unfold the foil and expose the color. Press the papers on the glaze and move around until they are covered well. Lift them off the foil and let dry.

Try other color combinations! You can make some amazing backgrounds with this tech!

Happy Creating! Kristi
