No Worries Inked Background

This week’s Color My Heart Dare challenge focuses on our No Worries products and required the use of Cocoa, Lemon, Smoothie, Sea Glass, Cashmere and White Daisy.  That may seem like quite the color palette, but I found it to be perfect for creating a beach sunset scene. As always, I included a list of supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of this post.


I have had many people ask how these backgrounds are created, so I have decided that my July Workshops will focus on Inked Backgrounds.   I plan to teach how to create this card and two others.  Visit my blog throughout the month to see what projects you can make at my No Worries Creative Club Workshop.  I will also have Workshop Guides available, for those who cannot attend, explaining how to create an inked background.

Email me at to order your $3.00 guide with detailed instructions for creating this card. As always, you will receive a FREE workshop guide of your choice with any $30 online order on my website (before shipping & tax).


If you decide to start trying to create some amazing Inked Backgrounds, I would suggest that you get yourself an All Purpose Mat.  This tool is a time-saver when it comes to cleaning up your work surface after inking.  Your hands may be a mess, but your work surface will be clean. 😉

Don’t forget to visit my site throughout the month so that you can see more ideas using the No Worries paper pack and accessories.

    1. Thank you Marie. That is so kind of you to ask, but my life right now does not always allow me to have a project done in time for a weekly design team. I might consider it in the future though.


  2. Wow – this is a terrific scene! Fabulous use of the colours for this week’s challenge! I love blending colours as well to create a background and these were such a perfect mix for this purpose. Thanks for sharing your talent with us at Color Dare!
