This is one of the swaps I made for Regionals. The background is made by inking up a texture plate with Bashful Blue classic ink. I'm not sure who to give credit to for this idea but what an awsome technique. The stamp set is Wonderful Watercolors.
You can ink either side of your texture plate with classic or craft ink depending on the look you want. If you use craft ink or versamark you can emboss it.
