This week is definitely about playing catch up with the house and the yard work. Spring has sprung and there is lots to do! I have managed to get a card out today, but who knows when the next crafty time will come?! Ahhhh!!!!
Here's a close up of the background I made.
So with this card I used Pearl Ex Powders to make a bubbly type background. You can see a tutorial for it here on SplitcoastStampers. This is a very easy technique that makes a LOT of texture and visual interest on your card.
I really liked the gold in the background, so I decided to pair that up with more gold and some black to show it off. I heat embossed the large flower from the Stampin' Up set Doodle This in gold on black paper three times. I cut out two of the images and left the third sitting on a square of the black. I used my crop-o-dile to put large sized eyelets through the center of the flowers and then arranged them how I liked on the pearl ex background. I really love the effect of the textured background with the black and gold.
I hope you enjoyed this post and come back soon for more!
