It's All In The Background

Happy Wednesday!

I'm up on the CrafTangles blog today with a selection of makes using different mediums with stencils.

To begin I've used texture paste, distress inks and a spray mist on a Kraft tag.  I coloured the sunflower and fussy cut it, stamped a sentiment and added ribbon to finish.

Next, I have a card where I have used distress inks in rainbow colours and added texture paste mixed with distress oxides to give additional interest.  I added a sentiment and die cut clouds to finish.

For my final card, I made a background using the smooshing technique then added clear texture paste and applied perfect pearls to give it a shimmer.

I've taken a close up so you can see the shimmer created with the perfect pearls.

After making the background I thought it would lend itself quite well to an ocean themed card so I stamped and coloured a mermaid and bubbles and added a heat embossed sentiment.

If you're interested, there is a more in depth tutorial on how I created all these on the CrafTangles blog HERE.

See you again on Friday,
