This is another post from the bi-weekly “Inspired by Pinterest” series. In this series I use images found on Pinterest as inspiration for my cards. You can view all posts from this series by clicking here.

For my today’s post I picked this wallpaper image I found on Pinterest. I really like the barely visible white lines that divide the diamonds and the color combination.

To create this look I used four colors of gelatos from Faber Castel, embossing pen and a couple other supplies. The idea is very simple – you need to create a diamond grid on your paper (using a stamp or if you don’t have a stamp like this – an embossing pen and a ruler), emboss it and create a resist effect.

    1. I can see this technique done with a lot of different simple and repetitive patterns. I love the rainbow wash of color over the top.
