{Tue} Technique: Make Your Own Background

Tuesday, August 09, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

Paper Sweeties is sponsoring Pile It On #114 - Make Your Own Background - and the prize is a $25 Gift Certificate!

I created my own background by stamping the star image (Planner Series - Get Your Craft On/Paper Sweeties) in different colors. I trimmed the panel to size and used a piercing tool on the edges.
I placed a mask (Dina Wakley) on the bottom right corner and sprayed the panel with ColorShine (Heidi Swapp).
The sentiment is a sticker and I placed it on white + printed paper, trimming one end and adhered it on card.
Finally, I added some sequins (Sequins - Cookie Dough/Paper Sweeties)!
