Background Online Card Class: Herringbone Backgounds

Hi, everyone!

Well, it's Day 5 of the Background Online Card Class for me. And, I was really intrigued by the embossing folder technique.

So, I used a herringbone folder to create two panels.

Canson watercolor paper
Stampin' Up!/Sizzix embossing folder
Distress Ink black soot applied using SU sponge dauber

Since I haven't peeked to see what Day 6 holds, I'm not sure which of these panels I might use. Depending on the technique, I may go back to the card on the left and add more consistent and/or darker inking. And, I may consider using this folder to create similar panels on colored paper.

Looking forward to Day 6 techniques.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  :)
