Hi everyone! I'm taking the Background Check class from Online Card Classes this week. (If you're not taking the class, I suggest you do. All of their classes are very well done and informative!) I've created a couple of backgrounds and made them into cards. I'm sharing a plaid one today and a different background tomorrow.
Laura Bassen created a background similar to this one and made a card with it similar to this one as well. I guess you can say I cased her! I used three pigment inks and a stripe stamp. I also used two die inks (the black and gray). I sponged on the gray color and stamped the black with a thinner stripe stamp. The scallop circle was die cut from the center then I embossed the sentiment in white. I added some yellow sequins.
My colors came from this week's Color Throwdown. I did add in the gray and black as neutrals. Love these colors!
Thanks for stopping by!
