Today's challenge comes from Tim Holtz tags , we were challenged to try out his background technique used on his tag. She mentioned that she skipped using black paint for the base and just used black cardstock, so that is what I tried on my first card. I used mustard seed paint and the outcome was a green color, although it didn't turn out the color I wanted I did like the modeled look it gave to it.
Black cards stock for base
Distress paint -- mustard seed
Inkadinkado -- script stamp (background) and garden delight stamp set
Hot off the presss dazzeles -- tiny words and phrases, the sticker is silver so I went over it with black marker
My next card I used 120 lb. cardstock from Gina K and painted it black and added the mustard seed paint on top and the color is more true in this one.
Black Heavy body acrylic paint for base
Glitz designs -- Distressed background stamp
Sizzix -- Mixed Media die cut from DCWV metallic papers
Silhoutte -- ivy, inked with distress inks
Inkadinkado -- garden delights stamp set for flower, fussy cut
David Tutera -- celebrate sentiments, inked with antique linen distress inks
This was a technique I never would have tried on my own so I like to do these challenges they really have me trying new things.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
