I am popping in to share a card that I created for Altenew Educators IG Blog Hop. I had the idea of doing this "Background Check" theme and everyone in the hop seemed to like the idea.
I will point out the special feature/techniques in this project in the following highlights.
1. text background: you do not need a background stamp to create a text background.
2. keep the focal point simple: here I stamped and stenciled the image from Be Kind Stamp Set.
3. Add Textures: it's easy to use embossing folders to add textures! You can add part of the dry-embossing into the design. You can dry-emboss directly, or just add a strip of dry-embossed image, it really makes the background more interesting.
A note about using Embossing Folders.... you can use any nonseasonal ones. Here I used Eggcentric Embossing Folder for the top and bottom. Embossing Folders like this is not limited for Easter only!
4. Spare no glitter and splatter: adding a touch of glitter and splatter make the project look artsy. It requires little effort!
Thanks for stopping by!
