Hi gang! Elena here with you today with a new background technique I would like to share. This is really simple, but will make an amazing background for your projects!
I start with A5 size piece of paper, adding some embossed stamping to it first using Gilded Burgundy Brass embossing powder.
Now I take three colors of Magicals that match our November palette: Greased Lightin’ Green, Canna Lily Burnt Orange and Glory of the Seas GoldTake a dry brush and scatter the magicals here and there, all over the paper. Canna Lily Burnt Orange first:Then add Glory of the Seas Gold:And some Greased Lightin’ Green:
And now – the most fantasic step – sprinkle the water all over the paper. They are called MAGICALS for a reason, aren’t they? 🙂
And dry the paper with the heat tool. The colors are mixed and fused together, looking just gorgeous as a result!
I cut my background into two pieces and made two cards, also adding some drops of sprays from November set:
Greased Lightin’ Green
Canna Lily Burnt Orange
Golden Sleigh Bells
Some close-ups of my cards:
