I was so inspired after visiting different blogs who are participating in the Where Bloggers Create 2013, that I decided to create some of my own background papers. Sandra Kaye from Sandra Kaye Designs has made some beautiful, bright papers. I went for a more antique look, but I like how my papers turned out. I used masks, spray inks, rubber stamps, markers, and distress paints to create unique background papers for my next cards. I started by laying the masks on water color paper. Then I used spray inks in different colors. Next, I used distress paints mixed with water to create a color wash. Then I used markers to highlight the stencil design. On the pink and blue card, I also added a background rubber stamp design. It was fun to use supplies that I haven't used in awhile. Here is what I made with them.
I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenge at Sister Act Card Challenges.
Here are the background papers that the kids made during their art session this afternoon.
