General Techniques

Linen-Look Backgrounds - a technique creating wonderful texture!



  1. brayer
  2. multi-colored ink pad ( I used a Big N Juicy pad)
  3. sanding block
  4. white glossy cardstock
  5. stamps ( I used butterflies from the Fancy Butterflies set 437 )
  6. purple permanent dye ink pad

Brayer the glossy cardstock with the multi-colored ink.

Randomly stamp butterflies over the brayered cardstock using the purple ink.

Take the sanding block and sand across the entire cardstock and then sand up and down.

You can see faint lines like linen going across and up and down. This makes a very nice background.  Here is a close -up of  how it looks.

I hope you enjoyed the technique. Have fun giving it a try!
