Todays post is about the backgrounds for cards. First card uses a Sue Wilson Butterflies striplet die, which has been cut out of white card and the 3 butterflies that come with the set cut in black. Then attached to a piece of double sided adhesive and then gold flake from Creative Expressions rubbed over the exposed sticky areas. Simply matted onto black and the sentiment from Crafters Companion

Second card uses the squishing technique of applying distress ink onto acetate and spraying with water before applying over an embossed image. Colours used are Dried Marigold, Preserved Raspberry, Tumbled Glass. The background stamp is the Honeycomb background from Phil Martin and embossed with Wow white embossing powder. The 3d butterfly is from X cut and the sentiment again from Crafters Companion.

The third card uses strips of card from a Tatty Teddy pad from Trimcraft to make a pattern.....great wait to use scraps. the coordinating Tatty Teddy stamp has been coloured with Spectrum Noir pens, Its then been cut out and attached to a circle die cut, the sentiment is from same set as previous cards.
