Background with Mini Cube Inks

by Lilith Eeckels

Hello and welcome to a new day with some layout inspiration.

Today, I'll be sharing a layout I created using some mini cube inks to make a fun background.

@lilitheeckelsI picked out some blue ink colors and chose to work with the Sweet Dreams Mini Cube Ink Set. I randomly stamped a square image just by pressing the ink pad onto the paper.

@lilitheeckels @lilitheeckelsTo add color and detail, I pulled out the Dearest Friend Stamp and Die Set. First, I stamped the image in Permanent Black Ink and left it to dry. Then I colored the images in with the Artist Markers.

@lilitheeckelsFor my title, I combined a stamp/die from the Super Script Stamp and Die Set and paired it with the stamped word DAD, which I stamped using the Tall Alpha Stamp Set.

@lilitheeckelsFor extra detail, I added some words from the mini My Family Stamp Set and also inked some butterflies using Pink Pearl and Coral Bliss.

I really love the combination of the different elements and had such fun creating this.

Why not try stamping with your mini cubes?

Happy scrapping.
