Instead of applying the Memento Inks to my stamps today, I applied them directly to an Inchie Arts Art Square to create an artsy background. I love that these inks are so versatile and can be used to create backgrounds, too!  
I started with a white Inchie Arts ATC Art Square. This was perfect for this technique so I could add lots and lots of water without any warping. And I found the rich Memento Luxe Inks just danced on the surface.
How To
1. Press Memento Luxe inks directly onto the surface of the Art Square. Start with your lighter colors. I used Lilac Posies, Morocco, and Sweet Plum.
2. Before ink dries, mist the Art Square with water. "Tilt" the Art Square to help the colors blend together.  Allow to air dry or speed up the process using a heat tool.
3. Stamp with Penny Black Flamboyant using VersaMark ink and sprinkle with white embossing powder. Heat to set.
4. Add twine (May Arts) and sentiment (Penny Black).
Now you know what to do next... :)
