|I used a sponge dauber with the black ink around the base of the card, as well as the piece that has the sentiment on it. Then I used my slate ink pad to rub the edge of the slate cardstock.|
Making your own background:For this I simply picked a design I liked, and because I wanted it to look like worn writing I took a towel to pat some of the extra ink off the stamp before stamping the paper.Also because the paper is larger than the stamp I alternated which side of the paper I started on each row to minimize noticeable lines between the stamped images.
