Make your own Background


Since Chris asked so nicely, I will put together a tutorial for this background technique...but it's going to take me a few days :) I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out!



Supplies: Flourishes stamps; Bic & Spectrum Noir markers; Labels 5 Nesties; Studio G clear glitter glue; Stampendous fun flock; Yellow Daisy & Pearl glimmer mists (Tattered Angels); distress inks in: Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Salty Ocean; Cuttlebug embossing folder


This was intended to be a piece of 'faux patina', but when I was done with the inking I decided I liked it as is. I inked the 'wrong' side of the embossing folder with Salty Ocean ink, and then after embossing sponged it with more Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, and Spun Sugar inks. I then sprayed it with the two glimmer mists. I really like how the mists help the inks blend even more. After colouring the image & die-cutting it, I painted the glitter glue onto the fairy's wings, and added Fun Flock for the dandelion fluff. 


xoxo,
Jessi
