For the LOVE of Backgrounds!

Greetings Inky Friends!!

A new month means a NEW RELEASE from Technique Junkies which means a
NEW SALE of 15% off all November release stamps from 11-1 to 11-08-16.
(Discount will show up in your shopping cart!)

Which means a NEW BLOG HOP! If you are already following along, then you came from the Ms. talented Judy Jackson! IF this happens to be your first stop, then you should really go HERE and start hopping from the beginning! :)

Onto my cards....
I FELL IN LOVE with this BACKGROUND stamp and ended up creating 5 different cards with it trying to give the beauty of this stamp justice! I'll share a few now and save the other 2 for later.... so make sure and follow me so you won't miss them! ;)

For the first 2, I heat embossed the background with clear embossing powder and used these Color Splashes to add color and then mopped up the excess with a paper towel. The embossing powder resists the Splashes!  I used TJ's By the Sea stamp set for the blue~green piece, and this fun little Oh Snap camera set for the pink~peach card!

For this card, I inked the background using a Clear Pigment ink pad and dabbed on some Pan Pastels over the clear ink.  I then re-inked the background with a Whipped Cream (white) ink pad and stamped on top of the chalked image. I added little white dots using a Sharpie marker and heat embossed the TJ sentiment to finish it off!


I can't wait to show you the other 2 cards I did with this background too but or now, it's time to Hop on over to PAT and see what goodness she has to share!!

Until next time...
Happy Creating!
