The background on this card is made with old book pages.
Rip a couple of pages into small pieces about 50p size and glue on to a piece of white card,
overlapping the pieces, when the card is covered dry it off with a heat gun (not too close)
Now rub a water based dye ink pad over the card and the ink will just pick up on the overlapping bits,
Dry off, now brush over with a darker colour ink,
I used Distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany.
Now take a little Perfect Pearl powder or Cosmic Shimmer powder and mix to a paste with water and just brush randomly over the paper background, this will give it a pearly shade in places.
