Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
I've really been enjoying Kathy Racoosin's Print Making-Coloring technique but my
backgrounds always end up without much actual print but with a good wash background.
I Zoomed with some friends not long ago and we tried this technique together.
My dear and talented friend Loll, suggested using Distress ink smooshed onto a
palette to do our coloring.
It took several tries but I finally got a Print Making background where I can see
the prints. I found that Arches Cold Press really works best for the die cuts.
Intense color on the die cuts also helps.
If you'd like to see more examples of this technique check out the
cards my friends have made. You can click on their name to follow along.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Your flutterby made lovely impressions on your background, Bon, so soft and in such a pretty color family! And that sediment works so perfectly for a butterfly design! It was fun playing with you and I look forward to doing it again! Keep well! Hugs, Dolly

This is so lovely and you got such wonderful impressions. I love the color and that sentiment is such a great one to share. Our words are so important. Zooming with you was so fun and I loved seeing everyone.
The wispy, calm and beautiful background and technique look fabulous on your beautiful card Bonnie. What fun it must have been to craft 'virtually' with friends? x.
Such pretty colour transferred from the beautiful butterfly die cut to the background Bonnie, and a great sentiment to finish. A wonderful card! x
Beautifully done, Bonnie! I still have not succeeded with that technique but sure do love what you did with it. That sentiment is fantastic! It's perfect for that card.
Sure enough, I forgot about this technique again and it looks like so much fun, not to mention the gorgeous results it produces. I can clearly see your ghostly butterfly in the background. Beautiful card, Bonnie!
How fun that you ladies were able to do a Zoom crafty session! I am so loving your card Bonnie, the colors are just beautiful. That Loll (and you for that matter) knows her stuff. lol You got a beautiful background prints of your butterfly! I really love the sentiment from Mother Teresa, it was definitely perfect for this card. Hugs, Brenda
So pretty - I have been play8ing around with this technique.
I think that background has turned out really well, love the colours you chose and what a brilliant sentiment xx
Another card made in this technique and my next delight. I love the soft background and this amazing butterfly. The sentiment is also perfectly matched
I'm glad to hear you had a fun crafting session with cassettes via zoom, Bonnie!
The colors you chose for this technique are so beautiful, especially the soft prints in the background. The layout is so well balanced and I love the sentiment. It's so true.
Your colors are gorgeous, and you've definitely nailed that technique!
Romantic and dreamy. I saw this and thought it was truly a special technique to try. You've done an amazing job and this sentiment reflects this very special card. I love the softness of this background and you've succeeded brilliantly. xx
The background looks like more butterflies flitting so fast you barely catch sight of them, Bonnie.
