I have loved experimenting with inked backgrounds recently and have a couple of cards to share with you using different techniques.
For this one I have used Craft Card and coloured with Memento inks (Morrocco, Peanut Brittle and Toffee Crunch) I then stamped the edge with stamps from Craftwork Cards. I matted the stamped image of the flower from Crafters Companion Textures range and stuck it at a jaunty angle.
This card is so simple but I just loved the effect that I had to make two. It is simply masking off a strip at the side of a DL card and again using memento inks (autumn colours as above and the blues are Tim Holtz distress inks in milled lavender,weathered wood and shaded lilac) Don't be shy with the ink layer them up to get a lovely deep shade. I then stamped the card with the flower and sentiment from Woodware (Sunflower doodles).
Both simple but I am sure the recipients will be delighted whoever they may be.
