I stamped some Distress inks in Barn Door and Spiced Marmalade on to a glass block, spritzed it with water and then stamped it on to card. When it was dry I stamped the Barn Swallow from Stamps Away Wildlife set in black. It gives a very interesting background I think and I have used this technique many times using different colours. The red mat is pearlised card from stock, but the yellow mat was made by me. I used white Centura pearl card, sponged on a Scattered Straw Distress ink and then spritzed it with a mica spray. Again, simple but effective.
There are some fabulous backgrounds produced by the DT on MMM and also by other crafters. I'd love to have a go at them as they are just stunning. I wish I could leave comments on a lot of them as they are so lovely, but sorry ladies I am very pushed for time at the moment so have not done any comments yet. In fact this may be my last post for a while as I am going away next week for a few days and am busy trying to get my Romahome (a mini motorhome) ready. Lots to do. However I have just seen the new CAS sketch challenge, oh dear, I would love to have a go at that one, so you never know!!
