"My background was created using pixie powders and then sprayed with water. the diecut is a Tonic die and the flowers were created from a set of small flower dies by John next Door. Finished off with some picot edged blue ribbon and a happy birthday sentiment"
''Here are my CCs for this week.
Instead of two cards and I used the last two pages of one of my journals.
"This my card for this week,
Stencilled background using a Lavinia stencil
Colours were all distress oxides: old paper, squeezed lemonade, speckled egg.
Thought it was too dark so added a piece of vellum to soften.
Stamps are: painted poppies by stamping up.
Coloured with my pens.
Background same colours as stencil.
Lime perfect pearls.''
Now then to the 3 background challange I got together in
the end, I had fun making them and I hope you like them.
1/ Dry embossed background coloured with Distress inks
I then used a Stencil to make the flowers and there
are some butterflies too in black.
2/ Here I used Distress again through another Stencil in
Peacock feathers, Mustard seed and Cracked pistachio.
3/ On this one, yes you right, another Stencil :) here I
used Glitter paste and I thought Christmas. Picture is
recycled and some bits from my stash finished it off.
On both cards I’ve used Distress Oxides to create my watercolour backgrounds. The background die is from Crafters Companion. I stamped one of the Woodware text stamps on the second card and framed it with the Sizzix frame. The butterflies are from Tim Holtz.
