How to Make Colored "Watermarked" Background Paper

Creating Watermark Background Paper

One of my favorite techniques for creating background paper use to be using Versa Mark to add watermarks on a solid sheet of cardstock .... Hummm???? How to do that with digis??? EASY!!!

Several months ago I discovered (after YEARS of not knowing about it) that there is a "borderless" printing option on the Windows "print screen" (under Preferences)! That has CHANGED MY LIFE and made creating background paper a PIECE OF CAKE!!

To use a digital stamp the same way you would have used Versa Mark (the old fashion way) just
change your stamp color to be the same color as your colored cardstock, change your printing option to borderless,
print and VOILA! You have a watermarked paper!


For the sample below I just built a one column grid and filled every other cell with red for my red paper… results:





So, you can use any digi to make your own colored background paper, and save on ink!
