Abstract Background Technique

Happy June everyone and welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  So this week we are doing abstract background techniques.  Now…it’s not that I can’t do these but I decided what I don’t like about a lot of these is that they are MESSY!  I DON’T DO MESSY!!!  LOL!!!  After MANY attempts at different things I did FINALLY come up with one I liked!  Okay…that I REALLY LOVE!

Isn’t this pretty!  I used pretty much the Polished Stone technique – glossy paper, reinkers, alcohol and cotton balls  Here’s the details…

  • Blueberry Bushel – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Glossy White – 3 3/4 x 5, start with Lemon Lime Twist (cotton ball and alcohol), Next Call Me Clover (cotton ball and alcohol) and then Blueberry Bushel (cotton ball and alcohol); once dry (it dries VERY quickly) randomly stamp the three leaf image from Rooted in Nature using Versamark and silver emboss
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 5, add to panel
  • Whisper White – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add behind panel then add to card front
  • Whisper White – 1 1/4 x 3 – stamp greeting in Basic Black and Blueberry Bushel, cut into banner
  • Whisper White – stamp leaves/stem in Lemon Lime Twist 3 times and solid single leaf in Call Me Clover 3 times, cut them all out and layer behind banner.
  • Blueberry Bushel 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon – loop behind tag/leaves element and then add to card front using dimensionals.
