A background 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" smooth white cardstock panel and a die cut Foursquare Backdrop Portrait were inked with Minty Fresh and Peacock inks using an ink blending brush. The edges of the backdrop die were masked with post it tape to keep the edges clean for a "matted" look without the extra layer.
