I am using both Kraft card and Cream card to show the technique. A background stamp. I have chosen to use this Tim Holtz script stamp. Also I use Archival ink.
This is after I have stamped the image. You can see the difference between a brand new stamp pad and an older one. The Archival Coffee is much wetter than the black and the image is not quite as fine.
I then chose some more textural background stamps. I really like these ones from The Artistic Stamper. Versamark ink pad and clear embossing powder.
Stamp these background stamps over the other images and cover with clear embossing powder.

Choose some distress inks to further colour the card. I just had to play with the new limited edition fall colours.
Just apply the colours with sponges to really show up the resist.
