These two princess cards look quite similar but I tried two different stamping/inking techniques on fun foam. On both I heated both sides of the foam in this case pink. RDM finds that gives the best impression.
On Julia's I made the princess impression first and then brayered the background with pink passion or pixie pink dye based ink. I LOVED the bright pink. The only problem was the ink never dried even after a week.
On Julianna's card (a co-worker who thinks of herself as a princess) I inked the princess stamp in the hot pink and then impressed that into the heated foam. You don't get multiple chances to stamp (I guess you could rinse off the ink and reheat and restamp) but at least it doesn't shed color for ever.
The white crinkly background behind the fun foam is a piece of a plastic grocery bag heated with a heat tool.
