I always keep a piece of cardstock under my work when I stamp or paint, so that whatever goes over the edge doesn't end up on my desk - when that cardstock gets all filled up with ink and paint, it becomes the base of other mixed media projects! It's a fun way to recycle, and it's an easy start for something new.
My background panel is one of those pieces. I embossed my favorite Cover-a-Card Damask background over the panel and embossed with clear powder, then rubbed dye ink over the panel for more contrast. This is a modification of the Joseph's Coat technique (click HERE for a tutorial!)
My main panel is colored with reinkers, Shinhan watercolors, Touch Markers, and Inktense pencils. The brush markers make a great base color for the narrow stem and leaves, and the other mediums are all waterbased, so they play together well.
