I began by making myself a watercolour background. I added blobs of paint to the 12 x 12 before spraying water over out. I let it run in various directions before blotting off the excess. I dried it off with my heat gun before repeating with another colour. I used 3 colours in total.
Once my paper was finished and dry, I began adding random stamping around the page in black ink.
Next I added more stamped images but this time using the wow embossing pad and bonding powder as I wanted to add some colour and sparkle using the wow foils
I used different coloured foils. Also, my 12 x 12” cardstock was textured so added a grungy texture to the foil. The photos below really don’t do the pics any justice, the sparkle is amazing.
Once I was happy with my background, I cut it up into 5.5” x 5.5” pieces to add to card blanks. I matted one on white cardstock and one on kraft card stock.
I die cut out a bunch of grungy shapes and painted them to match my watercolour background.
Then I began to layer up the cards with patterned paper, cardstock, the die cuts and embellishments
Hope you like how the cards turned out after my experimental background making session.
Thanks for looking! Sarah
