Lots of people have said to me that they would like to have a go at painty backgrounds for a change from all the ink, but they don't know where to start! (It's at this point that I direct them in the direction of my DVD, obviously!!! he he he...) no seriously, the best way to start is with something that takes seconds but is still very effective. Once you've 'dipped your toe into the water' as it were, you can begin to make things as complicated as you wish!
I thought I'd show you a simple paint background to show you what I mean...
I sewed around the distressed edges of the cardstock
The image is a very old Peddlers Pack stamp, stamped onto French text and cut out. I've adhered it with my hot glue gun, as it gives that little bit of a 3D look, but without having to wait ages for silicone glue to dry...
I'm joining in with my favourite colour challenge with this piece... why not go check out what everyone else has been up to over at CR84FN , loads of fab projects using the colours of light pink, cream and tan!
