Continuing Joanne's themes for CCEE Stampers.
"For today's challenge I want you to get out your inks and acrylics. Create a background using only inks, no stamps or embossing folders. Something acrylic should also be on your card. You certainly may use stamps for your main panel and sentiment. Only the background must be made without stamps or embossing folders."
For my background I used distressed inks with sponges, I am really happy with the colours but the stamped image blended into the background too much. On second thought I really should of embossed it so that it popped. But I couldn't waste it so plan B was to take a section and shape it to make it 3d. I then finished with some acrylic music embellishment.
I remember when I first started stamping over 15 years ago, I was told that there is never a mistake in creating a card. It is your creation sometimes you may not like plan A so go with plan B. Well sometimes I go with C,D,E and so on LOL.Supplies
