Quick and Easy Backgrounds

A few weeks back, I created a bunch of backgrounds using the Bundles of Blossoms background stamp from MFT Stamps.  Here are a few cards I created with those backgrounds.

For the card below, I used Liquid Platinum embossing powder and Distress Inks to create the background.  The word thanks is from the Thanks and Hello die from MFT Stamps.

I also used Distress Inks for this next card.  However, this time, I used white embossing powder.

I changed it up for this card.  I embossed it with gold embossing powder from Ranger.  Instead of using Distress Inks, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to add color.

After embossing, I colored the background with markers (see below).

Then, I sprayed it generously with water, allowing the colors to blend. 

Give it a try!

Stenciled Cards (Quick and Easy)

These cards were inspired by a video I saw on Kritina Werener's You tube channel.  Here's my take on her fun technique using some new stencils from Tim Holtz.
