You can create an original background by using a Versamark Ink Pad. This ink is clear and can be used as a "resist" medium. Just ink up a stamp with the Versamark ink and multi-stamp it onto your paper or cardstock. Then ink up your brayer, or a craft sponge, with dye ink in the color of your choice and roll/run it across the cardstock. The images that have been stamped with the Versamark will not "hold" the top layer of ink and will stay uncolored - it's a great look!
