Faux Alligator Background

This is a card we made in our October Hostess Club! The background was made using a technique I saw on a fellow angels blog - Kelly Rae

It wasn't that difficult, and really creates a fun background!

I took my Versamark stamp pad and used the Brayer to ink up my base cardstock (in this case, Olive). Then, I poured clear embossing powder over the top. Next step - I took a stylus, and drew lines through the embossing powder as I wanted the background to look. From there, heat with the Embossing Gun, and there you have it! A unique background! The stamps used on this card are from Happy Trails and Wild West. Of course, I had to add some Tan Scrappers Floss to this project, too!


  1. Have fun at the convention.


  2. Your card looks great Julie and what a great idea - I will have to give it try myself.
