It's come around even quicker than usual with the half term holiday and we have another week to go.
On with the new Daring Cardmakers challenge and Nat has chosen blended backgrounds so no excuses not to join in as you can make your own backgrounds with soooooo many different mediums. This challenge took me a lot longer than anticipated as I did one using my distress oxides but decided it wasn't quite right and instead of faffing about with it I thought it would be easier to start again. Does that happen to you? So, I began again with distress inks as I have ore of them (still saving up for more of the distress oxides).
I used an acrylic block and put my inks on then smooshed watercolour paper over it. I then sprayed feather stamps with water and stamped them on to the background. Finally, I heat embossed a trio of dot stamps with clear embossing power and that's my blended background with a couple of twists thrown in!
I finished the card with a die cut sentiment and some enamel dots.
There are lots of brilliant creations by the DT HERE so I hope you'll take a look and join in!
See you again soon!
