Black Printing on Backgrounds - Cards
The alcohol ink background was 4x6 so by aligning the graphic knowing that I needed to trim .75 inches off, I printed it on the inkjet printer.
Once trimmed, I adhered it to the purple/blue card front. This water lily graphic is from CLker.
I added a layered Stampin Up Modern label greeting in coordinating colors adhered with 3D foam tape.
It allows for a reasonably quick card.
For this technique to work well you need backgrounds that are on the subtle side rather than bright and colorful.
Sometimes in the process of making backgrounds I end up with lighter ones as I am cleaning up. Of course one can make them lighter if you intend on using this technique.
This card has a dandelion clip art again from Clker.
Printed, trimmed to 4.00 x 5.25 and adhered to the front of a warm teal green card.
I adhered a Stampin Up Decorative Label greeting with 3D foam tape.
These are off to my Card Exchange buddies.
