{Thu} Technique: Create Your Own Background

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Hello, Kraftie Friends!!!

Do you like creating your own background?
Last week, I was playing with Yupo Paper + alcohol inks (click HERE to see the card)...and today, I have 2 more cards...

On the first one, besides Yupo Paper + alcohol inks, I also added some stamping:

I dropped some red, blue, white alcohol inks and blending solution on Yupo. Sometimes, I'll move the paper to spread the inks. After it dried, I die cut the panel, stamped some numbers (Club Scrap Delft Art Nouveau unmounted stamps) and let dry.
I stamped "Hello" (Club Scrap Delft Greeting unmounted stamps) on the card base and trimmed the Yupo panel to leave a gap for the "Hello" sentiment.
Then, I added some enamel dots.

Second card:

After the Yupo paper dried (yellow, blue, red  and white alcohol inks + blending solution), I die cut a doily.
For my own background, I stamped "shoes" (Delft Greeting unmounted stamps) on light blue textured cardstock. Then, I stamped crackle texture (Delft Jumbo unmounted stamps).
I die cut a panel, added the doily, a white ribbon and stamped "celebrate" (Delft Greeting unmounted stamps).
Using 2 images from Delft Digital Kit, I fussy cut them and adhered them on with foam tape.
Finally, I added a wooden dot and doodled on it using the blue Gel Pen from Delft Gel Pen Set.
