Background check, day one, part two


Another card from the first day at Background check.
For this card I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolors to create the background and the stamp comes from Two Paper Divas.

Background check, day one


I'm just taking the class Background Check at and it's a great class with a lot of background techniques. I came up with these two cards on the first day.



For this card I used distress inks for the background and stamped it with a background stamp from Hero Arts sprayed with pearlized water. It's hard to show the shimmer in the photos.

Stamps: Hero Arts, Gummiapan
Distress Inks, embossing powder, perfect pearls.

I love the class and I hope to share another card from the class soon.

Thanks for your visit!

Now it's vacation for me but Kortskissen continues and I wanted to make a card with some summerfeelings. I usually interpret sketches literally, but this time I got a little carried away :-). It was fun anyway but maybe it's hard to see the sketch in this card.
Please check out the other interpretations here Kortskissen #313!

Enjoy your day - Card #339

Card #339

Hope everything is fine with you. The weather in Sweden has been really warm this weekend. I can hardly be outside, so I had to spend some time in my craft room :-)
I got some new stamps from Two Paper Divas to play with and I really wanted to do some heat embossing with this stamp.

Have a nice day!
