QUICK AND EASY BACKGROUND TECHNIQUE WITH INKY IMPRESSIONS


Hi everyone!  It's my day to share with you on the INKY IMPRESSIONS INSPIRATIONAL BLOG.  Do you ever spend what seems like a large amount of time trying to choose a perfect patterned paper to fit with your project?  I have this problem whenever I don't pick my papers ahead of time - which happens frequently.  So, I have learned some techniques to create my own patterned paper in a quick and easy way, and I'm going to share another of those techniques today (shared one last month too:))

Head on over to INKY IMPRESSIONS INSPIRATIONAL BLOG to learn how to make this quick and easy background.

I then chose to color in Inky Impressions Stamps image "Lili's Pumpkin" with my Copics, Sakura pens and Staedler pens.  I cut her out with Lifestyle Crafts die, added a banner die cut from Taylored Expressions, a squirrel stick from Jolee's Boutique and a sentiment from My Craft Stop cut with Nesties.


Hope you like it and will try this fun technique:)

I mean: great or super ( acccording to the dictionary)

I think it's not quit correct...

But it's simply a beautiful card!
