I get a lot of questions about the backgrounds that I create when I use a digital image. Most of the time, you don’t get a background included with a digital image, so you can create one or just use the image as you would any stamped image.
I really enjoy making my own scene backgrounds. I’ve been taking Copic classes for at least 2 years and they always teach us how to create a background. After a new class each month, you start to get an idea of how you can create your own background for your images. I will link the class site at the end of this blog post for the classes that I take. I love them!
Today, I created a video to show you how I made a fall colored tree and some grass below a faery on a swing!
How cute is this sweet faery?!
There is a nice branch stamp, a pretty leaf stamp and a grass stamp in this stamp set. I just couldn’t get the branch turned the way I wanted it to work on my card for some reason. I was having a day! I decided to just draw in my own tree and add some grass to complete the card.
You can see that I kept this very simple! I created the tree, added some leaves, a plain sky background, and then added some grass. I added the sentiment and some falling leaves just for fun!
What I love about creating my own backgrounds is that this was a plain white piece of paper an hour before I started my project. This is a single layer card. I didn’t have to die cut or do any special techniques. I love taking a piece of paper and some markers and creating a colorful scene on the card!
Here is the video tutorial for how to create the tree and grass:
