Trying Something New
July 20, 2012
This is going to be a quick post! It is thundering and lightening like crazy this morning! I decided to try my hand at using ink refills and water color paper to see if I could make some cool and simple backgrounds. Today's sample was my first attempt and well it kinda looks like a card that would be going to a "Dead" concert. Know what I mean or am I dating myself too much?
This was not the background I was going for but its kind of interesting. I used Daffodil Delight, Tangeringe Tango, and Tempting Turquoise. Kinda wild huh?
It is sounding worse outside so I am going to sign off now. Have a groovy day and let me know if you need to order some fun new stamps or tools!
I love your background, Sharon. I tried my hand at this technique too, and I posted my cards to my Splitcoast gallery. It was fun, but I need to work on it a bit. I think I get too fussy about it. lol

Very Striking. I love the bold, bright colors and the contrast of the black butterflies and the base. TFS

Thanks for the kind words! It is fun trying new things outside of my usual "zone".
