More Fun with Backgrounds...


I love to play around and make different backgrounds.

HOW TO:
1) Using Encore Ultimate Metallic (silver & gold) small cube
ink pads, Randomly stamp squares onto black cardstock.
Be sure to leave some open areas. However, don't
be afraid to overlap a little.
2) Emboss with clear embossing powder.
3) Now using different colors of pigment ink,
fill in the open areas.
Don't be too careful with the ink.
It will be more interesting this way!
4)Now emboss again with clear.


The background below was done using the same method I used
for the butterfly

Cheers,
Dorothy x

Hi Dorothy, What a creative mind you have. I love the colors on the second picture. Seems to me you it cost a great deal of work? Did you ever check out Beverly Gilbert's blog. Bet you like her color wheels. If you wanna check it out, she's on my blog as a follower. Have a great weekend.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!
