wanting something a little different want to use something inexpensive which all of have in our kitchen well this technique called TIN FOIL AND PIGMENT INK TECHNIQUE will just give you a simplistic but effective background quite inexpensively.
if Anyone viewed CINDYS card a softer background was produced using versamark and clear embossing powder, if you check out the Company Galleries and tap on the CTMH you will see projects in their.
ON HERE THE WHO LOVES CLOSE TO MY HEART AN WHY we as a community of CTMH fans are about caring and sharing and if you are new welcome this might be your new start to CTMH.
The following supplies you will need to make the TIN FOIL EMBOSSING TECHNIQUE

Aluminium tin foil aprox piece 10 inch square
Chosen embossing powder
pigment ink versamark is good
heat tool
protective worksheet

Choose a heavy weight cardstock otherwise your card will curl up, take a piece of tin foil carefully srunch up in the hand but not tight make sure you have plenty of crinkles and wrinkles these are what gives the final result.
dab into your pigment pad liberally well coat it then tap lightly onto cardstock of choice cover a whole sheet say of 8 1/2 by 11 inches by repeating yourself the forementioned.
when the card is completely covered in pattern and ink, throw liberally your embossing powder over the whole sheet of card.
Next clean any messy areas down with a small paintbrush and heat set watch this wonderful effect take place , you could use this technique with the new Topstitch but try also a variation by using gold embosing powder onto a sheet of Veranda from a level 2 paper packet by CTMH. Be careful not to scorch your paper when heat setting. useing the juniper paper or garden Green, will allow gold highlights of heat set crackle effect of gold embossing to contrast well with the darker paper colours.

Have Fun creating with this technique which i developed some 7 years ago post your creations so we can all see .
many Thanks
