Hello! Happy Friday to you! Today I am featuring three cards with a focus on the backgrounds!
My first card features the beautiful Slimline Mermaid Scale Stencil. I ink blended with reactive inks and LC Blending Brushes, then sprinkled with water for a fun splattered look! I die-cut the whale and small fish with the Mermaids of the Sea Coordinating Die. The Hello is specially made for the larger slimline size! Using the Nested Rectangle Slimline Die-Cutting System adds a lovely stitched finish to the layers. Lastly, I randomly sprinkled a few Shark Bite Sequins.
Next, I am featuring the beautiful English Brick Wall 6x6 stencil. I created a brick wall by ink blending a variety of colors with my LC Blender Brushes. Next, I stamped and colored a fox from the Like a Crafty Fox Set. (this set is currently selling at an unbelievable discount! Get him while supplies last!). I used just the Hey from Hey You Die and then finished off the sentiment by creating a sentiment from the Ways to Express Yourself set. Lastly, I sprinkled three Fire Gems for a little sparkle!
For my last focus on backgrounds. I used the Netting Cover Plate Die. I also splattered the background first with Pink Carnation Paper Glaze mixed with water and then Snowdrop White Paper Glaze mixed with water. I decorated the underwater scene with fish from Mermaid of the Sea Coordinating Dies. I added sea grass from Things on the Sea Floor and the Coordinating Die. The sentiment is I Love You sentiment and cut it out with the Coordinating Die. Lastly, I sprinkled a few Purple-Rita Sequins (I just LOVE this mix!).
Last but not least, I created a slimline with
I hope you found lots to inspire you today!
