I masked the entire whisper white c/s with masking tape then I added small strips of masking tape over it. I stamped with my ink spots directly on the masking tape, that is how I created the squares.
Then you add clear emboss powder, shake off the excess & heat set it. The background looks as if it is still wet.
"Caution" - after you heat set it be carefull, it is very hot, let it cool off for a few minutes.
I burned my finger.

The difference between an ordinary life and an extraordinary life is finding extraordinary things in an ordinary life.
