I created the background with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. It’s called the “Invisibles”. It’s like using clear embossing powder that acted like a resist.
First, I painted them white with regular white Acrylic paint. Otherwise no matter what color ink you put on the chipboard it will be VERY dark. Then I colored it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I then took my Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Spots and Dots) and ran it through. Then I took the same ink pad and put it face down on the embossed image.. Move it back and forth until the area is covered with ink. It will be a little darker then the first application of ink.
To finish them I sealed each with clear embossing powder. I did that so the ink would stay put and not rub of. Acrylic paint can create a resist all by itself. It also makes a nice shine.
The chipboard letters were white to begin with so I just added Peeled Paint to them. I also clear embossed each of the letters.
I attached the letters to a strip of striped paper with a scalloped border above and below it. I sanded the scalloped edges.
I attached all the pieces including the last 2 elements which are the 2 metal words….”Remember” and “Cherish”
