Background Check - Day 2

Hello Friends,

I'm back with a couple more backgrounds I've made with inspiration from the On-line Card Class, Background Check!

I'm only showing you the backgrounds, I'm hoping to make them into cards, with the inspiration I get tomorrow ;)!



I've used two techniques here, the top picture shows a piece of patterned paper and how I changed it by using a stencil, some VersaMark ink, some clear embossing powder and some dark brown ink.

The second picture shows that I started with a piece of glossy white card stock, which I brayered going from dark to light with one of my new Distress Ink colours, Evergreen Bough.  I then stamped a slim background stamp 3 times going up the piece in VersaMark ink and then I brayered over the top of that, again going from dark to light in Peacock Feathers.  It seemed like it needed a little more so I added the tiny image in amongst the pattern with Scattered Straw, which you can see more easily towards the top of the piece.

I'm really enjoying the class, it really is making me use some different stash, stash that I've had forever!

Enjoy and thanks for popping by.

Happy crafting,

Carole x
