Default TLC197 Speckled Backgrounds (12-1-08)

Hello Technique lovers. I hope that everyone (in the US) has recovered from the long holiday weekend, and are ready to jump full on into the Christmas season. Whew...the list of things to do are mammoth, but today's "Simple" technique will have you creating one-of-a-kind backgrounds in no time.

For today's technique you will need:

Glossy Cardstock (regular cardstock can be used, but I don't think the effect is nearly as dramatic)
Ink (either several coordinating colors or a spectrum ink pad)
Sponge Brayer or you can sponge the ink on if you don't have a brayer
Simple Green Cleaner
Spritzer bottle

I first learned about this technique from the Technique Guru herself, Pat Huntoon, back in April. Where she ever came up with the idea to use Simple Green in crafting is beyond me, but serves as an example of just how many household items we can use to create unique crafting techniques.
  • First gather your glossy cardstock and apply your ink colors either using your brayer, or sponging on your ink. Try not to overlay colors on top of one another, to avoid "muddying" the ink.
  • Next, put a little Simple Green Cleaner into a spritzer bottle. If you don't have a spritzer bottle, you can put a little into a bowl and tip your fingers into the bowl and flick the cleaner onto your inked glossy cardstock, leaving some droplets on the cardstock...you'll see the effect right away.
  • Let your cardstock dry and then proceed to finish your card as you normally would. Viola...you have a fabulous one-of-a-kind base for the rest of your card.
  • Now you can either stamp directly onto your cardstock, or use it as a background for other images. (as I have done)
Why not experiment a little and try dipping a sea sponge into the Simple Green and dab onto your inked cardstock...or find another way to apply by using "out of the ordinary" items...I'm anxious to see all the different ways you will come up with to expand this technique.

This technique is "simple", quick and can really give you a wide variety of looks. Hope you'll give it a try.

To see my sample using this technique, CLICK HERE.

Hint for next week: We will light the night, so get your wine glass, some vellum cardstock and a few punches. (curious?)

I've also heard that simple green is great for cleaning your stamps. I've got a whole bottle I'll have to try this technique

No simple green here either...SOOOOOO I used copic markers on glossy cardstock and spritzed it with rubbing alcohol....kinda has the same effect. I really didnt want to color in the adorable giraffe as I wanted the background to show.

Heres mine

I think I have this figured out, but I do need a clarification. The ink covers the entire surface of the cs, right? (before spritzing the simple Green). Does it have to dry before spritzing?

Yes, cover your cardstock with ink first. I just went right from applying color on the cardstock, to spritzing. I'm looking forward to seeing your creation!

Any other equivalents to Simple Green? Usually I know what way I can improvise, but that's something I've never heard of except in all the threads on cleaning stamps.
And I presume that's pigment ink, if I do work out something I can use? Hope I can, the effect in yours is just so lovely!!

I used classic ink, not pigment...and as for an equivalent to Simiple Green, I'm clueless. Sorry.

I've been gone for a week and am in withdrawal, so I had to try this challenge - no Simple Green here, but I used Mean Green from the Dollar store and it did mute the colors and make some splotches which I hope will show up! Here's my

Thanks for looking and/or commenting. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

This looks like fun. My work schedule is really heavy until January 3 and I'm mandatory on-call, the only person on-call for my job, until January 3 too; so if you don't see me around much, that's why. I'll try to do as many challenges as I can to keep up with y'all. In the meantime, I hope to try this one later today or at least some time this week, but I hope that all of you have a great day.

Simple Green??? Never heard of it! Guess I must live in a cave. Will have to sit this one out unless someone knows of a substitute. In the meantime, I'll go carve on my cave walls and sharpen up my club.

Sounds like fun - but I will have to try to find Simple Green (never heard of it), but found the website that said where I can buy it - http://www.simplegreen.com/shopping_where_to_buy.php

Hope to be able to play today.

I'm at work now, and can't look at the ingredients in my Simple Green. You can always try it and see what happens.

she probably spilled the cleaner while she was stamping - and a technique was born LOL!

I just used the last of my gallon jug of simple green. i do have a new household cleaner spray by simple green company, i'll have to see if that works the same. thanks lynn!

Hi! Well...I THOUGHT I was using Simple Green, but I grabbed the Greased Lightening instead... Guess what??? I got the same results! LOL!

I wanted to make a FUNNY Holiday card for a Jewish friend who always says, "You have Santa...I have the Blue Frog!" Well...I couldn't let that slip past, now could I? LOL!

Here's today's submission

I think any 'friendly' cleaner will work, I tried it with Clorox Green Works and it worked fine! Although I did use SG on this card
