Want To Learn A Quick And Easy Background Technique?

By | 05/10/2014

Want to learn a quick and easy background technique?  This is pretty fabulous!  I couldn’t wait to share it with you.  This came from the Stampin’ Success magazine that Stampin’ Up! sends their demonstrators every 2 months.  It is chocked full of ideas made by really creative people.

I did not have all of the supplies they used on their card, so I adapted this to my own version.  I’ll tell you what I’ve changed as I describe the supplies for the card!

I’ve also created a video to show you the technique!  You’ll love this!

Stamping Imperfection Striped Background

I’ve used Aqua Painters to color my images here, and I haven’t done my tidiest coloring job.  I was pretty excited about sharing this background technique with you!  They used the new Blendabilities alcohol markers.  Mine have not arrived yet, so I came up with an alternate solution!

I’ve also elected to use two floral stamp sets with coordinating punches from my stamping stash.  The sentiment came from the Love You To The Moon stamp set that is only available until May 31 at mystampingstore.com.


Here are links to the supplies used to create this card:
