Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.
I have a design to show today that features a background that I created while on a recent vacation. Miranda showed us how to create backgrounds using Ecoline Inks with embossing. I created a card using the background after I returned home.
We started by embossing a Hibiscus flower with clear power here and there. Next added some Ecoline inks and then embossed a few more flowers. Next I stamped a Hibiscus using Distress Inks. I was stamping on a very uneven surface and ended up with 'non perfect' stamping which actually created more interest (I think) to the background.
The Hibiscus, leaves and Hummingbird were all stamped on watercolour paper with cobalt archival ink and then coloured with Brushos crystal inks. Lots of fun.
Design by Ryn stamps used: Hibiscus set, and Flying Hummingbird 2
With the return of nice weather we've been very busy with outdoor chores, other activities and I haven't had too much time or energy to be in my craft room or on my computer. So I'm taking a break from blogging, I don't know how long but I will be back.... soon... I hope :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
