Jill's Tutorial on Using Tim Holtz Inks Creating Background

Thank you Jill for allowing us to post your tutorial on our lil' Simon Says Stamp blog! Your work is awesome and I think the tutorial will help readers understand another way to use Tim Holtz' distress ink pads! For more inspiration, please visit Jill's BLOG.
Hi friends! I've had a few questions on how I made the background for my card on the Hero Arts blog, so I thought I would do a little photo tutorial. It's a super easy and fun background to make so I hope you enjoy.
Here we go!

And here's how to make the background. I use the felt pads with the Tim Holtz applicator tool. I think you are supposed to use the foam ones, but I've always been happy with the effect when using the felt pads.

Thanks again for Sharing Jill! Hero Arts' Antique Brocade Stamp can be found here:
