Susanne Rose <-- you are here

This is how you can make the backgrounds for these cards:

I made two gelli prints with black acrylic paint and the lovely Flower stencils. The first print is the one in the middle, the second is the ghost print on the right. The left one is where I've cleaned the stencils. I didn't use this for my cards, but I save it for later.

Now I added water with a spray bottle and Brusho powders. I used purple, gamboge, olive green, sea green and orange. I cut the backgrounds for my cards with a stitched frame die and build the cards together.

I embossed the kraft card base with WOW! Black Glint powder and a stamp from STAMPlorations. I adhered my Brusho background at an angle with foam dots. Finally I added the sentiment.

I cut the sentiment with the Tim Holtz Word Block dies from Sizzix from some Brusho - scrap paper.

Thank you for stopping by today!
Good luck in the draw!
xx Susanne.
