Hi Oddies! Today I’ve got a colorful card full of spring feeling for you.
My plan for today is to show you how I made this colorful and messy background for sweet Daffodil Fairy.
I began with supplies. My digi stamp, all colored up with Polychromos, some scraps of patterned paper, a couple of acrylic paints with a small brayer and some sewing thread.
I tore the paper in smaller pieces and attached them to my background. For my background I usually use a piece of heavy weight smooth cardstock, like cardstock for mixed media.
Then it’s time to add color! I just love the texture and inconsistency I get with a brayer.
And here is my finished background. I softened the colors with a white acrylic to match my already colored stamp and then created more interest with a stencil, some black splashes and the thread.
