Today I have the honor of being a guest designer
to host the tutorial of the week for Splitcoaststampers
so it looks like we'll be 'stuck' together for this one!
I've made several samples (scroll, scroll away!)
and a whole video which you can see here:
It's fun, creative and easier than it looks!
You'll need some school glue (you know you got some!),
acrylic paints (or watercolors but mix them up THICK!)
and some cardboard (from all those Christmas packing you are getting!)
and this tutorial right here will help you create these amazing
backgrounds for your cards.
For this first card, I used tones of pink and peach for the background.
I added a tree from Tim Holtz Sizzix collection and added
it the front of the card as a focal point with a little sentiment.
The beauty of this technique is each one is unique
and different and none will ever be the same!
I've also kept the fun going and make a shaker card edition:
Here's a close up of the snow and the dimension
and for this card I've used Simon Says Stamp Gnome Peeking.
I stamped the trees and die cut those with the stamps and dies from the
SSS set and used one of my #inktober watercolor backgrounds.
No snow in Florida so I loved creating this shaker version!
And that's it for this one today :)
Thanks for stopping!
